Done, also removed the unneeded etcshellsd.xml and did the same with 
symlinks{,d}.xml. While these first two sect2s in sysmlinks.xml were 
absent from systemd, I plan to put them back into it. Most of the text, 
save for the scripts themselves (which no longer exist outside of eudev) 
and related explanatory text, can be reused.

Looks like the currency script ran correctly. I must say that this merge 
has been really smooth. Bruce, Pierre, excellent work! I'm looking 
forward to using jhalfs with the merged source in the next couple of days.
