Actully udev development has slowed down, and has been pretty much
reduced to tweaking the base rules and permissions and adding new plugin
programs that udev can call if you want it to (to get a label off of any
fs, get scsi id information, etc.)

Also the early boot issue is getting worked on (lvm startup is pretty
nasty, we need to name devices in a specific order for dm to work
correctly it seems.)

But I don't see anything lacking in the current udev package, and don't
see any concrete suggestions in this thread either (people seem to not
realize that udev _is_ a tiny C program...)  But am very open to any
proposals that anyone might have (if they do have them, please cc the
linux-hotplug-devel mailing list where the other udev developers are.)
