Agreed then.

Ok, i was thinking about some arch-dependant scripts, instead than one only, 
to put in the test/ directory (already present).
For GNU/Linux system it should be enough to test:
1) hal and udev installed && running
2) a basic check on udev rules (like "what user/group will own the created 
device file?")
2b) permissions on usbfs (currently not yet used by kmobiletools itself, but 
we could use it, and the kioslaves installed by kde 3.5 do)
3) Check for /var/lock presence and permissions
4) Bluez setup (but this could be optional, as it should be handed by solid)
5) Checking if a default user (provided by command line?) is belonging to the 
groups in tests 2 and 3

Am i forgetting something?
