First of all I have to admit that I am not too familiar with D-Bus/HAL
internals (I have only used the Python API so far) but your thoughts
sound pretty interesting and straightforward.
The idea of multiseat and f-u-s is really good and offers a quite large
range of additional possibilities for the user - that's why we should
keep on working on it.
If your work on muliseat should continue (I really hope so!) feel free
to contact me when you need a test setup. I am looking forward to
supporting the development on that point.
Stay tuned :-)
