Either is good (for me as maintainer).

A comment about the "notification spam": the user only gets 4
notifications for "low battery", "very low battery" and "critical
battery" and one saying "I'm doing the low-power action in 10 seconds"
-- and then there are a 2 optional notifications (i.e. that you can turn
off in gconf) for things like notification when you remove the
ac_adapter, or when the battery reaches 100%.

There's been quite some cleanup-of-late in CVS, so please checkout a
fresh CVS if you think the code needed some re-organisation (or love)
then please comment if you think something should be done better.

There's lots of stuff in bugzilla [1] of stuff in flux, like the HAL
restart organisation, and the suspend notification and/or resume
registration for applications, so I can understand it you think that
it's "not quite ready"

I guess if g-p-m is not a "blessed" module, then the string and UI
freeze no longer applies -- or is the decision not yet made?
