Maybe we should think about some code that monitor added fdi-files (monitor
the merge/match directives) and libhal/dbus calls which try to get
keys/properties and in this case write some big warning to /var/log/messages
to force them to use the new keys. This maybe cost some performance, but
better than hold deprecated in hal after end-of-lifetime of the keys.
