Sorry for the late reply.  I had to close out while mucking around with
udev and forgot to send it.

Could expand that with a specific file, but it'll be removed shortly
anyway, as will the script.

OK, again it'll be removed soon, but best to have it right for now.

Yep on both.  Thank you.

Actually, after reading another comment about it tonight (last night), I
was writing my reply and it finally occurred to me that it is very
device specific, no matter how much I want it in there, it should
probably be ripped out completely.  Much like my suggestion to remove
mySQL instructions from Courier, it's perfect hint material.  It's still
there only because it was there before (undocumented) and I used it.
