I suspect very few packages should depend on udev.  Most packages
depend on local and remote file systems being mounted, and it is up to
the boot system to get to that stage.

The next upload of mountdevsub.sh will have a should-start dependency
on udev, to make sure the proper order is generated.

Actually, I've implemented the concept of override files in inssert, a
program reading these headers, and the local admin can add a file in
/etc/ to modify the configuration.
