I looked at it. And it looks really good, my only concern with it (last time I 
checked) is that you have to rescan the whole computer when you ask 
informations only on one device (using the library).

But, with some more work it could become a very good alternative to HAL imho.
Or a way to simplify HAL a lot, and maybe improve it's portability (moving the 
depend from the Linux kernel itself for a lot of the work to a library that 
can have an equivalent on other systems).

By the way, I took a look to "lshw" too... it's a small tool but it works 
quite well!
