Well, thanks for being straightforward about it: clearly you're keeping the
option of udev requiring systemd open, and in fact want to move toward that.

Yeah, we'll see :) You have udev working nicely, fulfilling a whole load of
use-cases, and now you want to upwardly-couple to er, a service-manager.
Running as pid 1, no less, even though it's not necessary. (I predict that
latter decision will get reversed in a while, just like a /usr partition
went from an anachronism to a grand new design, and xml config formats are
no longer talked about; thankfully binary logs got slammed back out the door
in-kernel at least.)
Not build another thing utilising udev and dbus, not even one closely
integrated, but upwardly-couple every Linux system to that new userspace
project. Good luck with that.
