That's not bashing, that's reality. I'm not going to recompile anything,
because first of all that's a strange way of quitting something I don't need
and second it's not going to help anyway (unless your DPMS implementation
needs 1MB heap). KPowersave is not different, that's part of today's reality
as well. There are good reasons not to run either of them.
