Just a question regarding dbus<->hal<->KDE interaction; I have the right
impression when I think it's still nescessary to use the dbus-0.69 qt
bindings if one wants the KDE desktop to show device icons when e.g. an
USB stick is plugged in, right?

I have the impression that while the readers of this list are able to
get at that info, it's not stated in the book anywhere, it seems...
Or have I overlooked it somewhere?
