D-Bus/HAL (another round of misery...or is it fun?)

Hi all,

I'd like input from anyone that has experience with newer versions of
D-Bus and HAL (Jürg, you listening? :-) ) and how things have gone 
with packages building/working against the new API/ABI.

Currently in the book is D-Bus-0.50. In version 0.60, they claim
*major* API/ABI changes, including .so name changes. (I hate when
they do this). In the past, this has resulted in total breakage 
to packages not ported to the new API/ABI.

I'm looking for help from anyone that has worked with this new
version of D-Bus, and the ever-just-lagging behind-a-little-bit HAL.
