To be more specific:

upower already has a freebsd backend (for stuff like xfce-power-manager)
udisks does not and is currently Linux-only.

GIO/GVFS uses udisks/g-d-u on Linux and hal on kfreebsd in Debian.
If the xfce apps use GIO they should not be concerned about how the lower layers
are implemented.

Do you have a more specific questions regarding this topic?

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
