HAL has been deprecated and declared dead upstream so we want to
get rid of it eventually in Debian [1].

flumotion has a Recommends: hal dependency.

>From a quick look over the code, it uses Hal to enumerate audio and
video devices. A possible replacement might be to either use
python-gudev directly or pulseaudio.
