We Have Had This Discussion Before .
The consensus then  was that (new) functionality just depending on
HAL is fine, because HAL is our approved method of getting hardware
events from different operating systems. Linux 2.4 doesn't support it,
but everyone's migrating away from that anyway.
This situation is slightly different in that we're replacing
functionality; my reaction would be that the small number of users still
using 2.4 kernels can install battstat (hell, they've got it installed
already; they just need to remember not to randomly delete it!).
However, our "GNOME Desktop" (which is basically a recommendation to
distros, and all the distros are on 2.6) only needs to work on 2.6.
