  Oh, OK. Thanks for pointing that out. This is my first use of DBUS as a
programmer :). I wrote that part using some howto and it wasn't clear to me
how one should choose these names so I just picked some which looked
sensible :).
  About merging to HAL: I had the impression (and the name HAL supports it
;) that HAL takes care about hardware and notifications connected with it.
Also quota reports information through a different netlink protocol than
standard driver signals. So what I was originally thinking about it, I've
decided that HAL isn't the right place. OTOH I don't have a strong opinion
on this so if you really think merging to HAL is the right way, we can do

  OK, is there someone who'd like to write the module?

						Thanks for the ideas
