[PATCH] xfce4-power-manager: Support for keyboard backlight control

Imho xfpm can be much simpler. What you really want is a small frontend to
control what happens when an event is triggered (power buttons, lid) and
some control over things like screen standby time. Not much people need
more than that.

Battery status is really something that should be added to
Xfce4-battery-plugin (a backend for upower).

Screen brightness is like volume control. Some people love it, some hate
it. Not a perfect place for it.

What remains in the code is a lot of dbus crap that nobody will ever adopt
and things the kernel is way better in by default.
