So, to let me get this straight: Gnome 2.8 is going to work without
udev+whatever else installed .. it is not going to refuse to compile and/or
fail to start when somebody comes along with a 2.4.x based system without

Where's the problem then? Keeping 2.6 would only make sense incase the new
Gnome would depend on the 2.6.x kernel branch without being able to compile
on a 2.4.x based system. Now, the only thing that is going to get ripped
out when udev and friends are missing are the exact same features that
aren't in Gnome 2.6 yet .. right?
