Bug#524678: kde4-minimal: Battery Monitor widget doesn't support multiple batteries

Package: kde4-minimal
Version: 5
Severity: normal

The KDE 4 battery monitor is quite nice in a lot of respects.  One thing it doesn't do
however is cater for machines with multiple batteries such as my Thinkpad X40.

When I plug a second battery with the Battery monitor running nothing happens.  I got spoilt
by the venerable 'kpowersave' package in KDE 3.5 which used HAL to detect
battery insertions and was happy to report the status of multiple batteries.

This is certainly functionality that this new shiny Battery Monitor could do with.
Maybe the code for kpowersave could be used to illustrate one implementation strategy
for this.
