I just gave coldplug a try.

First of all, my Debian:

- unstable, just upgraded (not dist-upgrade, but a simple upgrade)

- vanilla 2.6.13-rc6 + ACPI patch dated 20050729 (compiled with
  make-kpkg), external modules are ALSA, cdfs, ieee80211, ipw2100,
  pwc, qc-usb and thinkpad

- udev 0.068-1 (and `dpkg --purge --force-all hotplug` ;-) )

- IBM ThinkPad T42p + docking station

And here the results (differences versus hotplug):

- mousedev is correctly loaded, but this is not the case for psmouse
  (so, it automatically starts xdm, but I need to manually load

- no sound at all (the ALSA modules are not loaded)

- no wired network (I use the e1000 driver), while the ipw2100 module
  is automatically loaded

- otherwise, it seems to work correctly (I tried plugging in an
  external USB drive and scsi_mod, usb_storage and sd_mod are
  correctly and automatically loaded, but not uloaded)

BTW, as you suggested, I tried to manully run the init script
two/three times, but nothing changed.

I'm available for others test if you need (and I'm on Freenode as

Thx, bye,
