You asked for it. :-)

1) Should I backport the removal of the ACL mechanism? Note that may
require changes in existing configurations, since we now (at least in the
trunk) only listen to the localhost. Listening to additional interfaces
(or the global IPv4 listing address, like previously) now requires adding
LISTEN directives in 'upsd.conf'. I'm not sure if this is a good idea for
2.2.2 or that it better wait until 2.4.0 is released.

2) The changes to the usbhid-ups driver, where receiving an INPUT report
triggers reading the corresponding FEATURE report. This fixes the problem
of many devices where the contents of INPUT reports are broken, but the
corresponding FEATURE report is fine. As far as I'm concerned I have
countered all your objections for doing so (if not, please let me know).
