When you come up with some patches I'll be happy to test.  I have an old
CyperPower 1000AVR with a serial interface.  I've never even tried to
get it running under Linux because I figured they used a proprietary
protocol, but recently I found nut and noticed it supports it.  It would
be nice to be able to see the stats in gnome-power-manager.  I just
replaced the batteries again a few weeks ago and it would be nice to be
able to monitor the battery voltage and do a load test periodically and
tell when the batteries are getting weak before they just fail outright
during a black/brown out.
