I don't know about solaris, I know hal is being used in a number of
linux distributions but not even all of them. windows has it's own hal
and less is known about it.

It might end up being a separate project for integrating sane with hal
in order to repackage sane for certain linux distributions that can
take advantage of newer device systems.
