Forgive me my ignorance, but what to do with something like this then, in
case of a cdrom reader:
a key called volume.ejected (bool), false if in not-ejected state, true
Then you could set it to true if its false, and HAL should let the device

Same thing for net: the IP can be 'set'-ted, altough this could conflict
with DHCP, mDNS,...

This troubes me (maybe I'm just dumb tough)
