[arch-general] HAL dependencies

I've recently started using Xorg 1.8 from the [xorg18] repo to finally be
able to get rid of HAL.  Xorg is working fine, but I want to remove the
remaining packages that depend on HAL.

It looks like there are only 3: gnome-vfs, gstreamer0.10-good-plugins, and
vlc.  I can use ABS to rebuild these without HAL, but I'm concerned that
these packages may actually need it.

Has anyone else stripped HAL completely out of their Arch install?

The world is full of tough guys.  It doesn't need me to be one, too.
