The X server currently uses hal for input device hot-plug; while we'd
love to move that to libudev, we don't have any configuration
infrastructure available in that environment, and so I suspect the core
server will grow some libudev infrastructure in the near future.
Anything we do with either hal or libudev is likely to be invalidated by
this plan, so I'd suggest doing the easy thing for now and fixing it
later when real libudev support appears.
