There is a windowmake tool (wmacpi) I think.  However, any such tool 
written at the moment would have to parse the /proc data from ACPI.
This is not yet a fixed format.  Also, I think there are plans to 
write a C API to the battery info to avoid the whole /proc mess.

So any tools might be a little premature.  But on the other hand 
I would really love a little gnome applet :)
