You might have noticed that whenever the battery is != full g-p-m shows
the status of the battery :-). It's just hidden when "not used".

More savvy users would probably have found the preferences dialog and
found the option in the last tab that controls this? :-)

I disagree. I think it's a lot better to have it this way and only use
the precious panel-space when there is actually something to show. This
could easily be compared to update-notifier and gnome-cups-icon.
