This might change sooner that later. I was talking to Matthew Garrett
on IRC some days ago about him finishing the patch that makes
hald run unprivileged but still exec helpers (addons, callouts, method
invocations) from a helper process still running as root (using D-BUS
in point to point mode between the two).  The reason, IIRC, was the
desire to use the power management methods that HAL now offers.
