I have an objection on the basis that we *already* have modem-modeswitch
(in the udev binary package), and Kernel code that already attempts much
the same thing.

We shouldn't have three independent pieces overlapping like this,
especially since we'll almost certainly end up with conflicts between

One of these should "win" to be the default; that discussion shouldn't
be specific to Ubuntu but should happen on the upstream
linux-hotplug at mailing list.
