In DeviceKit-power 007 I'm intending to ship a temporary
devkit-power-gobject library that will be used in xfce-power-manager and
At the moment we have four local versions of libdevkit-power in
different projects, and all four versions are different.
To use the library you have to define
I_KNOW_THE_DEVICEKIT_POWER_API_IS_SUBJECT_TO_CHANGE and fully understand
that the library will change and go away when we have the EggDBus stuff
in GLib, or in a stable distro.
The new library is basically a couple of GObjects, using standard
GObjecty properties and things.
I know a couple of people don't want me to ship a shared library, but
it's just become too cumbersome to ship four local copies, one of which
I don't have commit access for. I have to support this stuff in 2-26 and
2-28 and the shared library route is much easier than relying on local
copies of stub library code, or the EggDbus code.
If the EggDbus stuff happens in the 2-27 timeline, I'll convert
devkit-power-gobject to use it, and then nuke it completely in 2-29.
