I don't think the UI is necessarily final. In OLPC terms, I'm offering
this patch just before feature freeze happens -- it exposes the feature
we need, but the UI or strings might change, and we might add something
to the battery panel applet as well. It sounds like the level of OLPC's
current freeze (wanting new features in the build for testing that
aren't necessarily ready to ship) doesn't match well with the Sugar
roadmap; I'm not sure how to resolve that.
(With that in mind, I don't think we should mobilize translators for
these strings yet. I think they're unlikely to stay as-is.)
