Hey Herbert, thank you for your reply!

If a fork isn't required, then, I'll prefer that option, no doubt.

What about "systemd-udev"? It seems that in the near future, it will
not work without systemd = PID1, so, we'll probably need `eudev` (or
another one), to be able to remain "sysetmd-free" real.
