You asked "Please now explain how you think that music CDs are
autoplayed in the absence of dbus/hal."

I'm not an expert here, but aoutomount is a part of autofs:

I believe it can mount a CD when inserted.  Perhaps that can be combined
with a gnome program to automatically play a music CD.  Or perhaps there
is something else in gnome with the equivalent functionality.
