I did just installed it (from CVS) and it looks great.

Only some comments:

It does not work with ieee1394 devices :-P :

got msg!
message name=org.freedesktop.Hal.agent.DeviceRemoved; sender=:1-3
(unknown arg type 12)
message name=org.freedesktop.Hal.agent.DeviceRemoved; sender=:1-3
in handleDeviceRemoved
Segmentation Fault

The "(unknown arg type 12)" appears also with an USB photo camera 

Also, I don't know where is the gnome_hal_watcher that you talk about
inside the README.

I will look at the code and I will start the specs proposal merge soon.

I think that hal is a core application and some distributions will not
be happy adding python as a distribution core (I think that FreeBSD were
changing their core packages to move out perl, I'm not sure, but I think
that I read that)

The XML based format sounds better for me.
