gnome-volume-manager should be 100% platform agnostic.  It should only
depend on core GNOME stuff, D-BUS, and HAL.  Any Linux-specific stuff I
consider a bug and we ought to fix it.

HAL is also platform-independent in design, in the sense that new OS's
can be added.  It keeps system dependencies entirely separate, and it
surprisingly is not too much code.

So if HAL is ported to, say, FreeBSD, then gnome-volume-manager should
just work.
