I think this depends on whether you are prepared to handle the difficulties
involved in the occasional package restructuring that occurs as udev changes.
Personally I think the benefit of having a small dynamic /dev folder is so
big, that I can live with problems that show up from time to time.
For example for a couple of months this summer I had to manually
create /dev/dvd (and cdrom) symlinks after boot, so I could play dvds on
kaffeine. The reason was an udev change that caused the symlinks to no longer
be created. I had to purge all of udev and hotplug, and delete all the
