  Sorry, you are complaining that software which itself is one week
old use another part, which is 3 month old?
  If you can't upgrade udev or scared to do so, because udev looks
like low-level part of system, you shouldn't touch PA. PA is
quite low-level and critical also, its integration should be handled by
distribution maintainers.
