But you could include this suggestion as an example pwrctl-local?
I have another problem, I had to put ifup and ifdown in my pwrctl-local.
Do you think this belongs there or would it be a good idea to put 
"ifdown -a" and "ifup -a" in pwrctl?

You could add a test "[-x /usr/sbin/anacron] && exit" or something like
that into on_ac_power and not a dependency but a suggest for anacron.

 just my 2 cents
