Hello, now that you have added HAL backend, can you please consider 
adding DeviceKit power backend too ?

Under CentOS 6, even though HAL is provided officially, power management 
is expected to be handled with DeviceKit power, and removable media with 
udisks (not udisks2).

Under CentOS 5, there is (was) nothing except HAL for power/removable, 
so I absolutely need HAL backend.
I will investigate the UDEV requirement issue, but I'm afraid that there 
are many missing features in this old version ...
