Auto-mounting digital camera via HAL+IVMAN

Building on the success of getting my usbkey and HDs to mount automagically, I decided to try the same w/my digital camera + digikam.  This "just worked":

1)  Add following to ~/.ivman/IvmConfigActions.xml:

    <ivm:Match name="hal.camera.libgphoto2.support" value="true">
        <ivm:Option name="exec" value="/usr/bin/digikam –detect-camera" />
    </ivm:Match>

2)  Test / debug:

stop ivman
restart ivman in debug mode:  ivman –debug –nofork
turn on camera and plug in:
See what ivman spits out.

3)  (hopefully) watch digikam start up with camera contents open in a window and your album in the other window.
