Would you post a few of those links? If nothing else, it might help others searching for info on this.

I looked to see what apcupsd is doing, but they sign their kext now.

In the short term, what about using an embedded processor like a Raspberry Pi or a BeagleBone Black?

We have talked about making the USB backend a bit more flexible (to be able to use native HID code such as the OS X interfaces), but that will take a fair amount of design and testing.
