ACPIAC k(t)control module in TDE?

Tim, all,

  This is a tangential question on whether TDE has included an acpiac
configuration module for specifying event-handling for say laptop power-button
(suspend or off) as well as lid closed, etc.

  This is prompted by the trend away from acpi (with the configuration for
event handling in /etc/acpi/ to acpiac which has a dearth of
documentation and limited user-information. Evidently, plasma, gnome and xfce
have configuration widgets for it. K3 has none (aside from the monitor DPMS
control -- which isn't related). If TDE has an implementation, I'd love to see
the commit and see how you did it, and where you put the interface. If TDE
doesn't have an interface yet, well throw it on the wishlist heap -- as it
looks like we will all have to deal with this power-interface in the near
future -- it's code feeds into the kernel -- so it's coming.
