Agreed. I am thinking about it.
One possiblity is to keep the brain when configured --without-hal for
the initial device discovery and something run as needed -- ie, not a
daemon process -- to send the dbus messages should hotplugging occur.
But I think I prefer keeping the brain and adding support for inotify(7)
to manage hotplugging.
Evdev is linux-specific anyway, so that shouldn't be a burden. And it
doesn't look like it'll require much code.
I'll start working on a branch off of the 1.1.5 tag to test this out.
Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?
