no, not yet.
I've been hesitating for long, on either removing this or updating it to
feed UPower.
my stance is now that NUT will allows to feed UPower, for any kind of driver
(including serial).
but this will need some more investigation and work, that I'm willing to put
during the 2.8 development cycle (ie once 2.6.0 is out... this week).

In the meantime, I'm interested in feedback. So if you have any remark, I'd
happy to hear these...
