Which are?  If you mean people running tpb, tpb is as far as I know,
completely obsolete on anything that can run thinkpad-acpi.

I am honestely curious about it, and I can *do* something about it easily if
there is some functionality missing from thinkpad-acpi that is commonly used
on thinkpads that will run Debian Squeeze.
