Hardly!  I've built them, and got bootscripts for them (though they're 
trivial enough).  BTW, dbus-0.33 and hal-0.5.1 were released just 
recently.  The big change in dbus-0.33 was some reworking of the python 
bindings; this is what more-or-less forced the release of hal-0.5.1.  My 
system's running them both now, seemingly without problems.

If you could give me some hints as to how to get hal-device-manager to 
run I might be able to see all this stuff actually doing something 
useful!  I seem to remember having to compile half of gnome up (plus 
additional bindings), but then it still bailed out on me.  Maybe it just 
needed the other half of gnome too :)
