This sounds like a bad idea. Instead, you should write a python
extension using the Python C API that uses libblkid directly (unless you
plan to support other implementations than CPython).

'udev' output format is deprecated and will be removed in a future
version of util-linux. Starting to support it now is a clear waste of time.

For above reasons, unlikely.
