[vdr] VDR needs some way to detect new tuners on runtime...

Hello,

with event based init systems (in my case systemd) it seems to become a 
big issue to startup VDR.

If you install VDR on a SSD device, then startup gets *really* fast. 
Sometimes that fast, that VDR starts before all devices are initialized.

I've asked in the systemd mailinglist, if there is any way to get around 
this:

http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/systemd-devel/2013-August/012716.html

The result: The "daemon" (VDR) needs some way to detect devices while 
runtime.

So my question to Klaus: Is there something like this planned or would a 
patch be accepted which adds a feature like this? As far as I know a new 
dependency (libudev) would be needed.

And the question to the group: Who would be able to create a patch like 
this? My C++ knowledge is very basic. Much too basic to do something 
like this.

Greetings,

Manuel
