More than likely. I hadn't looked at energizerups before you mentioned this.

Ideally, fentonups would work like this:

[core fentonups code] <--+--> [serial code]
                         +--> [USB-to-serial code]

and the USB-to-serial code could be shared by other UPS drivers such
as fentonups, as needed.
