For Xorg input device hotplugging at least, the plan is to use libudev
directly on Linux, and whatever other native hotplugging mechanisms are
available on other systems.
I tend to consider it a good thing: once we actually decide to implement
some hotplugging infrastructure, we can design it in a hurdish fashion,
rather than HAL forcing us to use the non-hurdish dbus...
