It's true that upsmon doesn't deal with ALARM, and that's definitely
something missing.

What about adding a <notify type> "ALARM" to upsmon (and its .conf), and
have it processing like other notifications?
That would mean to you can have WALL / SYSLOG notifications, along with
EXEC reaction if NOTIFYCMD is set.
