I would expect that two systems would be needed--one with HAL but not
upower etc.) and one with upower and friends (but not HAL).

I am somewhat concerned about cluttering up the tdehwlib files with
conditionals and such, however this may not be an issue once the source
files are split into smaller chunks (e.g. Fat-Zer's work).

On a related note, please do not commit any patches to tdehwlib right now
as I am in the process of merging Fat-Zer's splitting of the source files.
