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. Rich
