Bug#379475: [Etch] Should sysfsutils be added to the base system?

Package: base
Severity: wishlist

As 2.6 will be the default kernel for Etch and /sys is playing an
increasingly important role in system configuration, I was wondering if
it does not make sense to add sysfsutils to base and thus install it by
default on new systems.

It can be used for example to set the default CPU scaling governor on

sysfsutils is comparable to sysctl, which does the same for /proc/sys.
(sysctl is part of procps and has priority required.)
