I know what HAL is, but I dont think it should be a configuration tool! 
I am just against the BootProgram/ShutdownProgram/ConfigureProgram
Properties in the 
HAL 0.1 spec. This is an awkward solution that may work for simple cases
like mounting/
unmounting, but not for more complicated things.

If you want to write a volume manager that would be better! I dont know how
good the 
existing ones like supermount etc are. 
>Of course, you will be able to deactivate it. 
I dont want to develop something that everyone has to deactivate, because it
break the system
