Please don't add such a private shared library. Aside from being ugly
and having systemd and it's tools have to use an RPATH, it makes (as
already mentioned) packaging udev separately harder. I think a few KB
of disk space do not warrant that change.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
