I'm worried about all this too. I have an Atom at home, so moving back to
Gentoo is not an option. I have some programs made to be compiled against
dietlibc, which does not support *BSD, so this is not an option either. I took
a look at Slackware, but I'm not enthusiastic about using old packages, and
I was put off by the install method. Yes, Arch's method is the easiest and
cleanest, specially this variant:

I have many customizations, and a rolling release seems essential to me. So,
what to do?

I *shall not* use UDEV/Poetterix.

I understand the developers' predicament: what should they do when the KISS
principle is in a collision course with upstream trends? I don't have a
solution, but I fear that this course will end up by killing Arch. The rc.conf
problem is just a symptom...
