Speaking of which, do you think it's possible and sensible to split some
common things in dbus out into a library?  I'm thinking of a lot of
stuff that is reinvented in dbus that exists in glib, like string
utilities, DBusWatch, etc.  If it's decided to forego a glib dependency
in the client library for hal, we'll need some main loop integration for
getting hardware events.  Right now I think it just assumes a glib main
loop or does the dbus stuff in a separate thread.  (David, correct me if
I'm wrong.)
