I disagree. I can come up with 20 (only?) more things that would be 
worth displaying in the battery status plugin that might also be 
semi-related.  But that doesn't mean that all those should just be 
shoved in there, nor does it mean everyone should be exposed to that 
fine-grained featuritis, because really, ondemand should work for 
everyone, and nobody should ever be using something else on a desktop. 
again. /imrepeatingmyself :P
