Yes, but DBus is a generic IPC system. It is just slightly related to
automounting and hotpluging. I mean, DBus is an easy way for
communicating processes that provides, among other things, activation
of well-known services. That's it's goal.

On the other side, I think HAL is not necessary at all since devd is
enough to do that.
