pmud does attempt to issue a warning, although /etc/power/pwrctl is
broken in this respect as neither of the attempts in do_warn() succeed:
local msg="Low battery, system will go down..."
/usr/X11R6/bin/xmessage -center -timeout 15 "$msg" || \
xmessage will require at least $DISPLAY, and almost certainly
$XAUTHORITY to be set for that to work. The latter is somewhat tricky,
since X may be started in many ways although this *may* work if you use
DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/X11R6/bin/xmessage -center -timout 15 "$msg"
wall requires the message in a file (possibly stdin) rather than as an
echo "$msg" | /usr/bin/wall

Sleep seems to be broken right now.
As far as battery monitors go, Batmon works.
