Since no other workable solutions were proposed, and since Michael made it clear
that this is not baggage he would carry in udev, I updated the proposed upload:


This should take care of all previous comments (and some extras from Sebastian
Ramacher), though I regret that the bikeshedding made us miss the stretch window.

There are still a couple of nitpicks: I'm not sure what is the appropriate
Priority for libu2f-udev (optional?) and I need to make a few MultiArch-related
changes, which should be pushed tomorrow.
