Since gnome-vfs2 requires hal-libs, this is the same goal!
Otherwise, as mentioned in the Feature page, we can disable HAL support in 
gnome-vfs2, like Debian is doing. In this case, gnome-vfs2 should fall back to 
/etc/mtab, but probably the functionalities of some programs may be affected 
(e.g. in Inkscape the "Import from Open Clip Art Library").
