Don't worry about it. You put things in very common, understandable
terms and is a good refresher for everyone (though it is fundamental
info for this discussion).

Where you hit the nail on the head is that HAL (after receiving a
message from D-BUS) communicates to the userspace application.

This whole discussion (this evenings) is centered around how Andy
is bypassing HAL and *what* process is communicating to *what*
userspace application to do the auto-mounting.
