Default any advantage to dbus or hal on minimal system

On a non-x system, is there any advantage to having dbus and hal
installed?

I'm bring a formally X enabled system down to a hardcore console only
log server.

Don't now enough about either hal or dbus to know if they need to be
removed?

My server (ssh, apache, tomcat, syslog-ng, djbdns, openvpn) doesn't need it.

hal might come in handy if you want to use hardware switches like the
power button but acpid might be enough for this.

Hope this helps,

I don't of any console based service that realy needs dbus or hal. Don't
think that a log server needs them. Espessially if you disable dbus and
hal in the use flags and do a recompilation of the system.

They are totally redundant.
