I agree with Damyan on that - the ondemand (or conservative) governors are 
smart enough, and work well.

Besides , if I want to switch cpufreq governors, I use a tool such as 
kpowersave, powersaved, or even just acpid. Letting those handle the 
governors works wonderfully.

On the other hand, on another thread Damyan raised the question of being able 
to configure what the soft-buttons do, in /etc/default/eee-acpi-scripts. 
There may be users who actually want to switch cpufreq governors with those 
keys, so it might be desireable to be able to configure the keys to do so.

However, I don't think that would have a high priority.
