You can also have a look at the different (and maybe more actively
maintained) version available from [1].

Maybe it would be a good idea to have a Debian package containing the
different tools available at [2] instead of just the backlight tool.
The other interesting tools are:
- keyboard_brigthness
- macbook-led
- temperature (of the CPU)
- hdaps-gl (GL-based laptop model that rotates in real-time via hdaps)

These are 2 shell scripts and 2 small C programs. It would be a waste of
resources to have a Debian package for each of these.

I also propose myself as co-maintainer. I have a write svn access to the
upstream repository.
