Now this is something that most people don't seem to grok: Just because it's a good thing we're allowed to do something doesn't mean it's a good idea to do it. There are dozens of examples for this, both within and outside of software development. I leave it up to you to think of a few.
And this applies here. Being allowed to fork is a good thing. But there's a cost associated with forks and it's larger than most people seem to realise, and thus people should think long and hard before forking. The eudev maintainers don't give me the impression of having done that.
