Yeah, I'm aware of that.

I just don't have resources for that at the moment. Making HAL work is
mostly porting work for me - FreeBSD guys have already done most of work
for us ;).
And it not just about disliking HAL itself ... Even more I dislike the
fact that more and more stuff is just unusable without it. You can't have
even simple sound output in KDE4 without HAL (which actually motivated me
to work on it ;).
