Regarding kmod: I don't see why anyone would want to use an alternative modprobe implementation, rather than the awesome libkmod. However, if they do, that's now really simple:
The latest systemd version supports disabling kmod (and hence all loadable modules support). If you do that, you can then easily add back your own version of one udev rules file (80-drivers.rules) to implement module loading with whatever mechanism you prefer (such as calling /sbin/modprobe). No patching of udev needed...
