Not sure what do about this HAL/D-Bus thing. Best I can tell GNOME
2.14.0 wants the bleeding edge HAL/D-Bus. Gnome-VFS wants HAL-0.5.7.
This is the latest and greatest HAL release. KDE works *great* with

I mean it works really great. I'm speaking of automounting devices,
and providing a front-end that is actually *easy* to use with plug-in

I just don't see how KDE could work with the old, and the new API/ABI.
But I am just speculating.

I would hate to see KDE's functionality be diminished by the newer
HAL/D-Bus. Only time will tell.
