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 ;).
