Sorry for assumeing that it's a principle for the whole ubuntu-family. It 
seems that all big distros thinking about replaceing hal:

Trying to install brasero aptitude just wants to download:
- brasero
- brasero-common
- dvd+rw-tools
- genisoimage
- libbeagle1
- libbrasero-media0
- libgmime-2.4-2
- libnautilus-extension1
- libtotem-plparser17
- wodim

That's just 2.7 MB to download (and not the half gnome-desktop ;-) )

It's jm2c to mention, that it could be dangerous to depend on something that 
is deprecated by big influential groups.

Ok, it's after feature-freeze, so maybe next time...
