I do that sooner or later.

However I currently use ubuntu 9.10, which has devickit-disks.
I need to figure out what packages to update (from source of course) to
make everything work with udisks.

I hope, I only need to update the libgdu.

On the other hand, I welcome warmly the name change. I always though
that DeviceKit doen't fit unix naming tradition (for example mixed case)

udisk/upower are much better. (if the daemon is called udiskd it would
be even better...)

Meanwhile note that I did publish the code on LKML and linux-mtd
