It's only an optional dependency. Gnome-VFS and Gnome-2.14 works fine 
without HAL or D-Bus. I plug in some flash memory and it automatically 
mounts it as /dev/sda1 on /mnt/mp3. Some problem with HAL or D-Bus is no 
reason not to use Gnome-2.14. It's just FUD to make out that Gnome 
requires HAL or D-Bus
