Hey, machines exist to do work for us, not the other way around ;)

Although IMO a source file that is cleaner could be used instead and 
then the udev & devd scripts can be derived from it.

It could all go in the port files trivially.

I think that if the port or NUT generated that file it would be ideal, 
the later is probably better since NUT's list of supported UPSs will 
grow but devd's file format won't change (much).
