No, but that's not the point. If the user asked for it, there's no
reason why it should be made impossible for him to use it.
Feel free to add a README.ifrename to the udev package, with an
explanation of why you think it's a bad idea, a suggestion what a user
_could_ try to make it less of a problem (if any such suggestion is
available), and a statement that bugs about interference with ifrename
will be closed with (at most) a pointer to that file; but I don't see
why you shoul _forbid_ people to use it after being duly warned.
Fun will now commence
