Woudn't it be nicer if these scripts would find out about the available
features and just do the right things? This functionality would benefit
Ubuntu, too, as their users might also use different kernels with
differen features. So, maybe Thom would be willing to help in extending
acpi-support to be so flexible that it works with all the availabe
features out of the box on Ubuntu and Debian.
