I agree that works.  It's just hard to remember the exact syntax.  Adding what 
is basically one inode to /dev is negligible and covers almost anything a user 
would want to do.

Actually the issue only comes up if the user uses jhalfs or reboots or umounts 
/dev.  I'd just like to make it easier than having to remember an obscure command.
