  Does somebody have already done a UPS driver for netbsd ?  I'm planning
to do one in the next weeks, but if it's ready somewhere I would not
loose time.

  I'd like this driver (daemon ?) to schedule shutdown, disable logins
and restore everything if energy come back before shutdown time. Maybe
battery charge estimation and other features.

  Does 1.0 already have the shutdown hook ?  I haven't seen the code
yet, and does not know how it works.  Maybe it would be useful in
this project, although I prefer this running at userlevel to easily
port to other systems/architectures (SunOS is a probable must).
