So I've moved 81-arch.rules back to /etc. There should be no need to
recompile applications, as those rules should still go to /etc

Secondly, I want to remove the readme file from the udev package. Does
anyone have a problem with this? At the very least I moved the install
to /usr/share/udev/ but I don't think we need to ship a readme file
for any of this - udev does have some comprehensive man pages. The
rest should go in the wiki.

Please take a look at trunk if you get a chance. I want to push this
to testing tonight or tomorrow.
