Is leaking information from the X server into hal such a good idea? An X
server does not have very strong ties to hardware and we could in fact
be running several X servers.
If this is pursued it should probably manifest itself as subnodes of the
hardware, one for each X server.
Also, if you're a bit paranoid you probably don't want user specific
information, like X server configurations, leaking into what is
essentially a system specific database. ;)
