Personally, I use xfce4-power-manager, and agree that it should replace  
xfce4-battery-plugin in most cases. I would probably decline most feature  
enhancement requests, and redirect people to xfce4-power-manager if  
xfce4-battery-plugin isn't good enough for them. But xfce4-battery-plugin  
is a working, simple plugin, so if possible, we should try to keep it that  
way. Bug fixes (13 of the 21 bugs come with a patch), translation updates,  
and (if I have time or someone gives patches) porting to upower seem worth  
doing and releasing.
