That is exactly how it USED to be done.  Now we have:

$ls /etc/udev/rules.d

10-libifp.rules               60-wacom.rules           90-alsa.rules
40-multipath.rules            70-mdadm.rules           90-hal.rules
51-packagekit-firmware.rules  70-persistent-cd.rules
60-libmtp.rules               70-persistent-net.rules
60-libnjb.rules               85-pcscd_ccid.rules      99-fuse.rules
60-pcmcia.rules               85-pcscd_egate.rules

And 90-hal.rules contains this:

# pass all events to the HAL daemon

Do I need to make a file 71-persistent-usb.rules ?  The reason I am
suspicious of doing that is because I used the gnome set authorization
tool to allow non root access to my ttyUSB devices and I haven't found a
rule for that in this directory.  I'd use that tool to allow access to
the USB port for my programmer, but it doesn't appear to handle non
standard devices.

I don't feel so bad about asking this question now...
