It is probably really up to the port maintainer, although I guess there 
is no reason they couldn't go into the NUT dist file.

One problem is that you need to specify what vendor/product ID to 
trigger off manually, although I guess a prototype script would be a 
good start.

I don't know how hal, etc.. work with this.. Hald runs on FreeBSD but I 
don't know much about it (although I run it on my laptop :)

We're getting another MGE UPS soon at work so I will be able to test the 
patch to ugen I wrote a while ago.
