Expect grumpy people every time that you add something new that they have
to learn. I also had troubles with hal and X when I tried the X servers in
experimental. But I have not read any serious criticism based on technical
facts in the bug report you showed.

That said, it looks like that having things just work on the desktop
require hal anyway and I fail to see why we would have to reinvent other
solutions (like continuing to maintain/create many hacks in acpi-support)
when we could centralize the knowledge in one place.
