Basically, yes... and that then makes for a much smaller and simpler
udev.  nanodev :)  Basically, just the callouts so that HAL can be made
happy and you have a nice static /dev.  

None of the complicated "which ruleset and set of shell scripts do I
need to run", etc.  Makes things far more predictable, lower impact and
actually gives the real benefit that people are wanting to take
advantage of without the more controversial bits.
