Any idea why hal is taken out from pmount?

A quick look at the ChangeLog reveals:

Yes, HAL is on its way out :) !

If I mount a USB stick using pmount the I can no longer unmount it using the
desktop manager's GUI, or Konqueror/Dolphin.

If I have mounted the USB stick with the desktop manager or Konqueror/Dolphin,
then I can unmount it using pumount.

Better remember all this before I hastily pull out the USB stick and corrupt
the data on it! O_O

I spent the whole of one long weekend trying to recover the files on
someone's stick after he'd done that. He blamed his teenage son, of
course.

It was only partly successful too. I think the lesson was well learned
though - they won't do that again in a hurry!

Ha! I remember! I was trying to help you rescue his data on this list. ;-)

Indeed, the list is full of helpful people. One or two of the other sort
too, of course, but after all, perfection is a purely human ideological
concept.

In the event, it turned out that I could have done more for him if I'd
started out differently. Oh well. Another glass of wine, waiter...

I'm glad some people still have better memories than mine has turned
into...
