There are a few issues here.  First, they are not releasing a tarball. 
We would have to make our own.

Second, one issue they seem to address is that udev has problems when 
loading modules.  Since we generally encourage out users to minimize 
modules, that is really not an issue for us.

Third, they want to support older installations.  Our users can 
generally do that with older versions of udev.

Fourth, our build is very fast (about 10 seconds for me).  Not going 
through configure is, IMO, an asset.

Fifth, the code is basically at an initial public beta stage.

That said, it is a project to watch.
