I appreciate everyone's comments on wedges so far.  Thanks!  Keep them 
coming! :-)

I agree, a better approach to device identification is needed.  I plan 
on dredging up my devfs ideas again once wedges is in and a little more 
useful, because I think a devfs is the right way to solve these issues.

However, I want to try and keep those issues separate from wedges, for 
now... I believe wedges can be useful even before we solve world 
hunger.  I also think it's important to have a lot of people looking at 
/ working on the code.

In any case, I plan on checking in my work-in-progress tonight.

Thanks again for all the comments so far.
