I agree with that. Hardware modifications will result in by-path entries
changing (I've got still that 20-year old ZFS demonstration in mind
where USB keydrives were pulled and rearranged in random patterns)...

I'm also seeing this, and while I prefer unique IDs like the WWN this
cannot be found everywhere.
disk=`udevadm info -r --query=symlink /dev/sda | xargs -n1 | sort | head -n1`
which will select a by-id entry if that exists, and fall back to "something
else" in other cases?
The sorting will also prefer ata and scsi entries over wwn ones though...
