Bernd, All,

(sorry for the duplicate, but your mails are not real Cc...)

Well, eudev now has had the ability to only build the library for a while


One issue I see with libudev-zero, is that is installs a drop-in
replacement for libudev, so it will conflict with eudev and systemd.

Also, packages that only need libudev would still need a generic
abstraction in the form of a virtual package that abstract libudev.

So, I would prefer we first stick with just eudev like my latest branch:

Then, of course, we could add libudev-zero as a fourth provider for
libudev, why not...

Sorry I haven't taken the time to properly rebase and resend this v6 of
my branch yet... :-( I can try to have a look, but feel free to grab my
patches and massage them as needed. Most patches need better commit
