By "to code for the trashcan" I meant that writing a patch with little hope on
someone looking at it, would be like coding to the trashcan directly: that
would apply to any project.  By no means I intended to call this project a
trashcan.  I have been a happy a happy user of the battery plugins and XFCE in
general for quite a while now.  Sorry, I could have said it more clearly.

I see, so it's two different issue combined then:

* double percent rather than a single one in the default text

* the default text shown while (if I understand you correctly) it should not
be, despite lack of a battery

I didn't expect the latter.
