:D  No, it's quite simple piece of code. It could be open-source in the
future (I have suggested it and it seems wheels are turning). It handles
automounting of memory cards, updates bunch of GConf keys, and sends
some D-Bus signals (background killing and low-memory), according to
certain HW events. Btw. I wrote it, so TI is not involved (unless they
have planted ideas to my brain while I was asleep).

BR, Kimmo
