In effect this means that any user having udev installed will have to put 
udev on hold. Because of versioned dependencies on udev, this will 
probably make a lot of other installed packages not upgradable.

The kernel is likely going to be upgraded automatically because users will 
be using the kernel-image-2.6-xxx packages.

So we're going to have another release with a very elaborate upgrade 
procedure in the release notes (which a lot of users, especially desktop 
users, don't read anyway)?

I agree with Sven. This is definitely not user-friendly.
If this really does have to happen this way, the user should be somehow 
presented with instructions to do this properly during the upgrade.

Cheers,
FJP
