Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Steffen Moeller <steffen_moeller@gmx.de>

* Package name    : noko-fsoraw

  Description     : FSO resource allocation wrapper

fsoraw (FSO Resource Allocation Wrapper) is a wrapper utility to launch
applications preallocating system resources from FSO.

Under normal circumstances Freerunner has resources (bt, wifi,
etc.) disabled to save power, FSO has a set of DBUS api to
allocate/release resources dinamically.

For applications that does not honour FSO you have to manually force
resource policy, launch the application, wait for the job done, reset
the resource policy.

There are some gui applications that let the user switch resource
policy but this need the user switches menus, clicks and so on, and may
be boring and slow, and sometime dangerous (suppose to be in car and
want to switch autodimming/suspending off, launch navigation software,
reset autodimming/suspending).
