Just a side question: 5.4.2 Note 2 § 5 states:

	You will have to reboot your machine to force
	hald to read this file.

which refers to /usr/local/etc/hal/fdi/policy/x11-input.fdi
that re-enables Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to kill X.

Is it really, really needed to reboot the machine? Can't
HAL just be restarted? I always thought "reboot to make
a minor setting work" was the domain of "Windows"...
