It's still visible to this user. Even though sound device permissions are set
through HAL *by default*, pam_console is still a perfectly serviceable
alternative. Now, you're saying you want to take this alternative away. That
places the onus on you to make this transition bearable. (I'm not arguing
against hal/ck on technical merits, just their practical ease-of-use today.)

Wow. That's a lot of stuff to wade through. How about a tutorial, or a
"cookbook"? I don't have a 00-thinkfinger.fdi, that's probably a 
Thinkpad-only file.
