I think acpid does not react to EV_KEY events - and it also does not support
hotplugging, so it won't detect an USB keyboard added to the system after boot.

If all ACPI events are also transported through the input layer (like the POWER
button), I wonder if its not even easier to abandon acpid in favour of a more
generic input-event daemon than to introduce acpid to hal and rest of the
hotplugging infrastructure.
