So, in pm-utils we strip away any quirks for users of the proprietary
nvidia and fglrx drivers.
And also for any KMS enabled kernel and users of the i915 module (for intel).

What is the current status of KMS for radeon and noveau? Is radeon KMS
still marked as experimental?
What do we do about users of radeon w/o KMS, nv or intel w/o i915?

Imo at this point it is a bit premature to rely on KMS only. Of course
we can just keep hal around for that purpose a little longer and safe
us the effort of a transition. My guess is, that Martin want's to get
rid of hal completely for a default GNOME desktop install in Lucid?


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
