There are 2 *much* better powerd's than the one that is included as
an example with sysvinit. The powerd.c in this distribution is just ment
as a programming example, not to be used in a real life situation.

1. GENPOWERD.

This is a powerd written by Tom Webster <webster@kaiwan.com>. It's a
nice package, you can find info at http://www.kaiwan.com/~webster/genpower.html

2. POWERD-2.0.

This is another powerd, written by rubini@ipvvis.unipv.it (Alessandro Rubini).
The main advantage over genpowerd is that it can signal other machines over
the network.

This LSM may be out of date. Please check if a newer version exists.
