I wrote that **an** abstraction layer is the way to go.
I deem hal flawed by design, sorry about that, all my skills (not that
impressive indeed) and will wouldn't help a scrap.

I don't think the lack of bug reports is the one problem affecting hal.
That said, I report bugs when I find them and they're not already in the BTS.
I send patches when I like the software enough, and I'm good enough
(neither of these is the case with hal).

I think I (and the other people who are against X dependency on hal)
have been pretty clear on the fact that we would just like an
alternative, not to kick hal away (we're not stupid nor crazy). I
think this would be good for debian.
I see you want to drag this in a flame, so I step back, I can live
with equivs as long as possible instead of wasting my time writing
So long,


Check your line wrap.
