Right and this data is fairly out of date right? I mean, is there up
to date data
on whether or not switching to CFQ will definitely cause issues in Unity?
I'd rather work with data which we have right now ( general feedback from users
suggests that baloo performance is quite bad with deadline and improves with the
switch to CFQ ) rather than making assumptions based on outdated data.

The udev rule is shipped via the kubuntu-settings package which does not land in
the Edubuntu install manifest . So I'm pretty sure this does not
impact them at all.
