Then I'd like documentataion on how to do all of these from the command line.

Probably so. The new one is HAL. 

Is there a fd.org compliant icon for HAL battery that would not be a part of 
some KDE or Gnome monster? If not, I'd like to have the docs for this HAL 
interface and a Python example of a fd.org compliant notification icon (I 
don't care which toolkit it uses, pyqt or pygtk or whatever as long as it's 
in lenny). I would then write the thing.

Yours, Mikhail Ramendik
