I agree that this is getting a bit off-topic. If anybody wants to
brainstorm about how udev ought to work, I'd suggest finding their
mailing list and posting it there.
Gentoo is a distro. We take the stuff other people make and make it
work nicely together. Our value add comes from the source-based
concept and the fact that we do support a pretty wide variety of
configurations, within the confines of what the upstream projects
allow. If your favorite webapp supports mysql, postgres, or sqlite
for the backend chances are you'll find that Gentoo supports all
three. However, if your favorite webapp only supports mysql then
chances are that we won't write a full postgres integration layer
simply because mysql is for losers.
If you want more options - then somebody has to write them so that we
can integrate them.
