The position of DeviceKit developers is that it will be a sub-set of the
HAL functionality. Some of the functionality will only be provided by
the lower level udev or even sysfs, and other functionality will only
be available via higher level like DeviceKit-disks.  So I would not
be at all suprised if we can't get serial number from DeviceKit, but 
there will be *somewhere* we can get it....  Yes, for libvirt's needs
it looks like the new DeviceKit will be more work for us, compared to
HAL :-(
