I'd say the udev folks need their coffee/tea checked. If this logic stems
from some requirement for a window manager/desktop environment on some other
distro, then we need to make sure that becomes a configurable item in Gento
or not support that package.
This is the exact setup I use, and it's worked great since 2003. No, it's
not the setup for everyone, so I don't think it should be mandatory for
everyone, either. I expect the same for other approaches to have a use for
some segment of users, but not to code it in as a hard-set default.
Gentoo's about choice. Why else do we have more USE flags than the entirety
of the IPv6 address space?
