Well, we just migrated away from hal, and some of the migration was
about merging udisks v1 patches.
Maybe a bit early to drop it?

Can't we have thirdparty depending on gstreamer 0.10?
Like Fluendo apps?

We use consolehelper heavily in drakxtools.

Weird, we should investigate that.

Thomas, I couldn't find the build data of latest live releases, probably
because /home/draklive/var-data is on a tmpfs.
After a build is completed, we should backup the content of the matching
/home/draklive/var-data directories on disk.
