Why not? That should be the aim and the desktop people should get their
ass up ;-)

Specs should be defined from the bottom to the top IMHO. Get a standard
general desktop interface and build the pm interface above it.

What consumers do you actually have for your Shutdown() method in
gnome-power-manager right now?

So if you like to have a spec as fast as possible, go for it, but you
won't get my agreement because it will create more problems in the long
run as it will solve.

I really appreciate the whole approach and the other interfaces, though.
