If only there was a viable alternative to udev.

Distributions are being pushed around by the udev+systemd project
precisely because of this reason; udev maintainers have said that udev
on non-systemd systems is a dead end, so everyone that uses udev
(everyone) is being forced to switch to systemd if they want to
receive proper support, and at some point there might not be even a
choice.

I for one would like an alternative to both systemd and udev on my
Linux systems, and as of yet, I don't know of one.

Cheers.
