One, this bug is not a feature and that's why I've been punting it since
I'd rather spend my time getting features done before feature freeze.
Second, the hal and hal-info tarballs needed fixing

 http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/hal/2007-March/007799.html

to actually sanely do this. Third, I'd be happy to see you co-maintain
the hal-info package and I think I even suggested you should submit the
hal-info SRPM for Fedora Extras. If it's in Extras already, it's simpler
to do the switch once the merge is complete. HAL will need a rebuild
_anyway_ to take advantage of libsmbios for backlight and rfkill on Dell
laptops.
