I would really like to see the /dev/apm* API go away, and a new power 
management API that uses sysmon developed, one that can express a 
richer set of power management capabilities.  This new API would use 
e.g. ACPI and APM (what whatever e.g. Apple Powerbooks would use) as 
back-ends to do its work.
