You obviously chose to misunderstand me :-) What I mean is pbbuttonsd with
the powermanagement related guts ripped out, essentially. Your package
merges powermanagement and other, unrelated event handling. Next, we'll
have emacs all wrapped into pbbuttonsd ...

Not at all :-) Choice is good - either use pbbuttonsd (if you need the
event handling stuff), or use pmud (if you only want power management).

BTW, the 'event handling with no power management' would be nice for
desktop machines that can't use power management - does compatibility mode
fully disable powermanagement in pbbuttonsd, or do you check for pmud
running and take over power management anyway if no pmud is found?
