On Wheezy udev placed removable devices in group 'floppy', which is one
of the default group assignments created by d-i for the first user. On
Jessie udev puts removable devices in group 'disk', As you imply, no
user should ever a member of the 'disk' group.
It should be noted the change is completely independent of which init
system is used. (Which was the point of the tale against myself).
