Comment(by tomeu):

 Replying to [comment:2 sascha_silbe]:
 > HAL was just uninstalled again on my XO-1 because nothing except Sugar
 depends on it anymore. Everyone else is moving away from it; we should
 swim with the stream to avoid maintenance overhead. ;)
 > devicekit-disks is used by Gnome, so it looks like the way to go.

 Agreed, though we don't use the disks part of Hal anymore. Would be good
 if someone could identify the replacements for the remaining uses of Hal.
