you must have missed the memo where the maintainers merged the projects and have made it so that you can't build udev independently of systemd

Yes, the problems he is describing started off as udev problems, but they are now systemd problems

You don't need to install systemd in order to install udev. If you start from sources you have to build both but it is perfectly possible to install (or package for installation) udev without anything from systemd.

This has all been explained to death here already.

They do share build infrastructure but you can run them independently so running udev doesn't imply running systemd. You're not going to get some kind of systemd cooties from building the shared components you don't end up needing if you just want udev. 8-)
