Well but this hasn't nothing to do with an HAL support via DBUS. You can be notified directly by HAL with zero manual configuration of the type of media plugged in (USB disk, audio cd, data cd, video cd, dvd, data dvd etc).
It may transform your project in something a bit more complicated but it would make it really much more useful. Maybe for infos you should ask Kevin Ottens, which is the media:/ KIOslave mantainer.

It would be good if this could support DBUS and HAL, both of which are used by kdebase-3.4.0 (for the media:/ kioslave, for example).

They're a much better solution for hotplugging and detecting new media.
