I want to bring to your attention that Gentoo is working on a udev fork
called eudev that will

- respect the Unix philosophy
- be POSIX-compliant and get rid of glibcisms
- have no unnecessary dependencies (systemd, kmod)
- support separate /usr


with the goal to make it default for Gentoo in the future, along with
OpenRC. I know from past discussions on this mailing list that not
everybody in the Arch community is happy with systemd. They are looking for
contributors and this is an opportunity for cross-community collaboration.
