HAL: the gift that keeps on giving.  It also has this wonderful feature
where it prevents you from unmounting anything you've ever mounted,
because it watches for new mountpoints in the system, opens them, and
keeps the file descriptors open indefinitely.

I know this isn't really germane, but I just couldn't pass up a chance
to complain about HAL.
