That's exactly the point :) Specific cases shouldnt mess with everybody
installs. It should be possible to do everything an user ever wants to
do, but there's no need to push that on every interface, that's only
cluttering. It already exists way to change the governor, using
cpufreq-utils or the cpufreq plugin. You might want to look at
laptop-mode too. But imho xfpm is not the good place for that (Ali might
answer on that at one point but he doesn't seem to be around atm).
