Currently, a big part of the Rhythmbox HAL code is there to detect when
something is plugged/unplugged, and then it checks whether the device
which was plugged is mounted and if it's an iPod. I think it's cleaner
to use the mounted/unmounted signals from GnomeVFSVolumeMonitor, and
then use the gnome-vfs HAL code to get the device UDI. This leaves us
with the function which uses HAL to check if the device is an iPod in
And I agree with Bastien when he says it's not Rhythmbox's job to mount
the volume.
