Currenly only for 2.6 kernels; it's intended to work anywhere that
OS-specific bits are written. So that HAL-using apps can run on BSD,
Solaris, whatever. Just needs porting. But that's rather off topic
here, I guess. ;-)

There are examples in the D-BUS tarball, IIRC.

The documentation could use some work... If you want to write a
tutorial, that would be great. :) Just remember that until 1.0 is
released, nothing says the API won't change. This is probably one
reason that nobody has put a lot of time into a tutorial yet...
