Actually I start to develop a replacement for kpowersave, but is not so simple 
to migrate everything from hal to upower. For example, upower do not offer 
any method to query/set CPU governors. We need to implement our own server as 
a wrapper over cpufreq (maybe named ucpufreq).

Now I consider to create something like ksmserver, which will handle all 
things related to power, and will expose a DCOP API to user applications.
