One thing I've been wondering for a while: what does `uevent' actually stand for, and why is it considered more euphonious than `hotplug'?
(I hope it's not `user event'; that'd be a rather bad choice of name. Typing on the keyboard is a user event. Coldplugging hda is unlikely to be.)
(Oh, and Greg, Kay, if you're reading this, thanks again for udev; I don't hotplug much, but I use udev regardless, as for sheer elegance udev, especially the new udevsynthesize/shell script/uevent/udevd scheme, is one of the nicest designs I've seen in a long time.)
