We should start with HAL and gnome-vfs, HAL removal is already in progress, see . Actually I've been working on that for some time already. I wouldn't object obviously making that a release goal. It seems certainly doable in time for wheezy. The only real blocker I currently see, is our kfreebsd ports, which still rely on hal e.g. in GVFS, which is a central part of the GNOME stack.
