Indeed. I don’t know if we have such programs now, but it might be
useful to launch them if there are some.

In which case, the same goes with AUTOPRINTER. The printer will be
automatically configured or set as online by hal-cups-utils, but you
might want to pop up some application.

So that only leaves AUTOPHOTO to remove, and probably AUTOVIDEOCAM in
the future when support for it is added in nautilus.
