Just a bump here. I'd like to throw this in testing if someone else
can verify I didn't make machines unbootable. When this hit's testing,
it will require a rebuild of packages which contain udev rules (move
from /etc/udev/rules.d/ to /lib/udev/rules.d/). When I move to
testing, I will make a todo list for these packages
