Now it seems you'd have to create an empty version of the net generator rule
in /etc/udev to override the one from /lib/udev.
Rather a mess.

I'm not sure that creating an empty version of the net generator rule file
works, either: I'm not sure if udev replaces files named $FOO in /lib/udev
with files of the same name in /etc/udev/rules.d. NEWS says:
> It does not matter in which directory a rule file lives, all files are
> sorted in lexical order.
which could go either way.

The use of /lib here does seem bizarre though.

But, yes, putting what damn well should be conffiles (as witness the fact that people want to change them, even if udev upstream is resistant) in /lib is demented.
