Custom responses to HAL events

When I plug in a USB memory stick, or insert a CD, the appropriate icon 
automatically appears on my desktop.  It would be nice if a similar thing 
happened when I plug in my PDA, but PDAs are not on the standard list of 
device types to display (under Configure Desktop -> Behaviour -> Device 
Icons).  I can probably identify the hal event corresponding to plugging-in 
the PDA but I can't see a way to make KDE respond to custom events like this.  
The icon would allow me to browse the PDA using the fish protocol (I have 
a .desktop file I prepared earlier that does this)
