Seems I was fooled indeed. Makefile has:

SRCS		:= src/conf.c \
		   src/mem.c \
		   src/log.c \
		   src/xpath.c \
		   src/hal.c \

and in src/hal.c it has
pusb_hal_get_raw_property() which indeed does talk to UDisks via D-Bus,
despite it's name. I guess I should have checked the code more carefully.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
