So, with the new udev, it seems that udev-acl is removed. This is a step
towards systemd which now handles all the ACL application.

Do we really want this new udev now? If so, then we really need to step
up the systemd integration. Things are mostly working fine for me
without udev-acls, but even with the systemd package as presently
available, I have to edit my /etc/pamd.d/system-auth file to include the
pam_systemd stuff - see my earlier message to this list about that.

This is a *big* change. Do we really want to do that just now? (believe
me I'm all for it, but I suspect the consequences of udev-acl being
removed from udev were not fully appreciated when it was updated).
