UPower doesn't handle multiple batteries correctly

Launchpad Bug #379599[1] and GNOME bug #570133[2] describes the poor
handling of multiple batteries over the last few years. This behavior
has existed for several years (since the days of hal, it seems) but has
been slow to progress due to a lack of test hardware. I now have access
to a Dell Latitude and a second battery and can confirm that the
behavior is still present. I've put up a `upower --monitor-detail` dump
on the GNOME bug[3]. What else can be done to move this issue forward?
