I'm concerned about how this is implemented.  Does it play well with

I'd be interested to see that supported in a way that doesn't require
the unsupported eee.ko module.  I understand some patches
have been accepted to support fan control in eeepc_laptop.ko through
the sysfs interface, but there is no support for it in userspace yet,
and that further patches may be needed before it is.

Not so much interested in this.  Since eee.ko is not in Debian (nor do
I see it ever entering Debian unless it is accepted upstream in
the kernel,) does the applet leave out that option if you don't have
eee.ko loaded?
