HAL is deprecated now. All projects using HAL are in the process or have
already migrated away from it. KDE has pluggable backends, so that's not a
big deal, but XFCE doesn't support anything but udisks/udev/upower. The
BSD community will have to supply their own patchset to achieve the same

Unfortunately, we're going to be without a cross-platform solution.
Hopefully other projects will follow KDE and allow us to easily supply our
own backend to powerd and devd.
