For a start, only user-written files should be converted.

This is the NEWS.Debian entry. Is there anything missing?

udev (0.070-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * hotplug and coldplug support has been merged in the udev package, which
    will load all the drivers needed as the beginning of the boot process
    and handle hotplug events later.
    The hotplug package has been disabled and should be manually purged.

    This makes the following configuration files obsolete:
    + /etc/hotplug/*.rc and *.agent: the old hotplug files are not used
      anymore. udev rules may be used to selectively disable coldplugging.
    + /etc/hotplug/usb/*.usermap: must be replaced by udev rules.
    + /etc/hotplug/blacklist*: must be replaced by modprobe configuration
