Yeah, that will happen soon after everything that is not related to
processes is moved out of /proc in the Linux kernel. :)

HAL started in companion with DBUS, which copied all neede stuff from
glib into its own source tree for portability and political reasons.
That time we thought HAL would do something similar, but I don't really
see the need for it or think it's likey to happen.
