that's indeed not so good... the ietf mib reports them OL but misses some 
values. like the 3 input phases, temperature etc and gives me
battery.runtime.low of 1 which i think is not that good either...

if i understand the xups mib right, it should send a trap when batteries 
go low (i might be wrong, since i looked into a mib for the first time 
today ;-)). so i'm not sure this value gets reported.

driver.version.internal : 0.42 (mib: pw 0.5)
with nut 2.2.0
