Hi all,

just made some modifications to scanbd:

- use libudev by default to trigger device add/remove actions
- made hal optional

The code is as usual at:

svn co https://scanbd.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/scanbd scanbd

scanbd is a scanner button daemon. It polls the scanner buttons looking
for buttons pressed or function knob changes and at the same time allows
also scan-applications to access the scanners. If buttons are pressed,
etc., various actions can be submitted (scan, copy, email). The function
knob values are passed to the action-scripts as well. Scan actions are 
signaled via dbus. scanbd can use sane-backends or some special backends 
from the scanbuttond project.
