Will the new kpowersave implement some of the session based DBUS stuff
similar like we do in gnome-power-manager? If it is, I would like the
kpowersave guys to look over my spec interface and see how much of it
looks good for them. I would love some of this (stripped down version)
to become some sort of cross desktop org.freedesktop.PowerManagement
interface but it might be too GNOME specific and need to be made more

Cool new session stuff for me is the inhibit thing for auto-sleep, and
session based sleep notification for stuff like GAIM and NetworkManager
and integration with lockdown.
There's also stuff for the brightness and UI so a trivial lightweight
front-end can be used with Sugar icons or Maemo widgets.

The proposed interface is here:

Please tell me about any naming funnies, or areas that don't look right.

Other suggestions welcome as well, thanks.
