! Instead I wrote a much smaller, simpler, single-app utility 
! which seems to do all the basic things I need: report
! whether running on AC or battery, report when the battery is
! low, and shut off the UPS.  Power fail and low battery
! events can launch an external script or program. The down
! -sides are that it only supports Tripp-Lite-like UPS' and
! has none of the cool features that "nut" has.  Nonetheless,
 I'm going to stick with my custom daemon because it's easier
! to use.  Plus, it is licensed compatible with the BSD license.
! :-)
! If anyone is interested in testing this program using a 
! Tripp-Lite UPS,
! please let me know.

I don't have one, but don't different UPS have some basic common controls?
So that your program might work with other makes/models?
