    I thought of the following: Another daemon, separate from acpid, manages
    all decisions. User programs can connect to this daemon and request
    temporary policy changes or notifications. This approach keeps the policy
    stuff out of the kernel, so we can move acpid's functionality into the
    kernel when (note I'm not writing "if") this becomes necessary.
