I like this idea. Especially since:
* it took me a long time to find the "apm=on" trick. How are you
supposed to guess this except by trying to recompile your own kernel
and reading the help that comes with the APM item?
* it took me such a short time to realize that APM support in the
default kernel is minimal:
- no console blanking
- no 'CPU idle calls' -> the fan wakes up frequently
* it took me such a long time to recompile a new kernel that included
APM, PCMCIA and DHCP all working at the same time
