That works nicely for me (I just deleted the entire old udev.rules
file, and used that one line).
It has the advantage that it's:
(1) very, very, simple (and udev is -- generally -- pretty simple;
it would be nice to preserve that property in the default config)
(2) backward compatible
(3) conforms to current standards
I think it ought to be the default in the udev package; the much more
complicated devfs-style rules file can be included in the package as an
example people can drop in if they want.
If debian's going to move to a different naming scheme for /dev, it
seems like it should happen because a consensus of developer wants
too, not because a single developer happened to prefer it.
