Make sense, I don't know, but a GNOME application that uses d-bus for
its IPC, has a BaconCdSelection widget (a simple CD device selection
widget that uses HAL) and uses the GnomeVFSVolume API (which uses HAL as
well) would have 2 connection to the d-bus via HAL and one direct one
(possibly not to the system bus though).

So, I guess that's it's possible, whether it makes sense is another
thing :)
