This makes sense indeed. gudev used to be a standalone project before
it was merged into udev, so the circle is complete now :-)

For those of us who already packaged gudev from systemd 219, would it
be possible to bump the current release to 220, so that gudev can be
packaged without renaming the tarball and doing ugly version numbers?
Monotonously increasing version numbers and all.. (Yes, there are
"epochs" in Debian, and I'm sure RPM has these too, but they might not
be available everywhere and are generally frowned upon)
