cpufreq in the power manager

Dear Ali
This is related to the CPU frequency features in the power manager.
One of the features present in 0.6.* and that I miss most in 0.8.*
concerns the ability to choose the governors. I know that some
consider the governors as time-waste, but I believe that they are
potentially important to many users (among others, for controlling the
heating of laptops).

I wanted to ask whether you would consider (re-)implementing a CPU
frequency tab in both "On AC" and "On Battery", in which users could
select the desired governor. A nice addition would be an option to
select the minimum and maximum frequency that the current governor can
choose. Also, "Information" could report battery as well as current
governor/frequency information.

Currently I use cpufreq-set and cpufreq-info to perform these tasks,
but it would so much easier if this could be graphically configured in
xfpm. Please let me know your position on this.
Thank you
