Need some advice on udev

Hi mentors.

I am (nominally) the maintainer of the awesfx package. Admittedly, I haven't been bothered to do anything substantial with it for a while (not since I lost my own SoundBlaster 32, long story). But now, since I have some time, I figured I should at least fix some issues with it, even though it's not of much use to myself right now. I've found a new upstream release that I'm packaging, for example.

The big thing missing in this package is, of course, the ability to automatically load soundfonts into the AWE synthesizer on boot, or when the ALSA driver module is loaded, or whatever - so, udev support. There are some udev scripts in etc/ in the source tarball, but they don't look particularly FHS or Debian-policy-compliant. It looks like those scripts expect that you can install a couple of scripts into /etc/alsa.d/, and then have the udev rules invoke them, or something. I don't see such a directory in Debian... And I don't really know much about udev and how to integrate that in Debian. So, where do I put this stuff?

If you're interested, you can find the package at http://www.ping.uio.no/~ovehk/awesfx/, there's an unpacked source tree in there too so you don't have to download it.

Thanks for any insight...
