We _do_ need a KDE applet that does that - there's no way to configure most
of powersave's settings except through an editor - but I'm not sure they
necessarily belong in acpi-support.

Syslog?  This seems out of place with all the other options you're
suggesting.  What need are you addressing?

What to do when battery goes low.  I think klaptop let me tell it to
suspend, hibernate, or shutdown when the battery gets too low - kpowersave
doesn't seem to give me that option.
