Thanks very much for the hard work David! I like it a lot better where HAL
is going now.

I agree wholeheartly with this. I would even remove BootProgram,
ConfigureProgram for the first version of HAL. It gives us a lot of problems
into a modern C++ framework and our distribution. Also I believe it is
important to get
HAL out quickly even if it means to reduce the features for version 1.
Nothing stops us to
expand into device configuration after HAL-1. And for simple mounting /
other "activation" stuff a separate deamon is probably more appropriate. and
already volunteered to do it (volume manager).
A minor thing: How about renaming the property GotDeviceInfoFile to
DeviceInfoFilePresent? Then all the DeviceInfoFile* properties would be
I am also still comitted to donate some ps2 and serial probing code. Havent
done it yet,
because HAL was still under heavy redesign. Also got some stuff for IDE/SCSI
probing atm if there is any interest. All is GPL.
Thanks for all your efforts and keep up the great work!
