Using D-Bus To Start Apps

I would like to use the D-Bus and HAL service to start
specific apps.  I plan to write a service wich reads
the D-Bus and looks for specific messages from the HAL
service.  For example, HAL reports a USB CD ROM drive
has been recently attached by the user.  My service
would read the D-Bus and start another application
based on the device detected.  I think I can create my
service using the D-Bus C API.  However, is there an
easier way?  Is writing a separate service over-kill? Thanks.
