the how is pretty easy: Solid::PowerManagement. the when is a bit more 
involved, particularly figuring out what to put in the user interface for the 
user to work with.

well, an enumeration in any case. =)

glamour()? ;) we could have Jenine Gorafalo at the low end and Angelina Jolie 
at the high end? (yeah, yeah, i'm joking)

i'd make it a set of flags (so multiple values can be |'d together), probably 
somethin glike:

GraphicEffect {
NoEffects = 0,
GradientEffects = 1,
SimpleAnimationEffects = 2,
ComplexAnimationEffects = 4 };
Q_DECLARE_FLAGS(GraphicEffects, GraphicEffect)

i don't know what other flags might be desired/wanted. i could ask Zack when 
he gets here in a few days if he has any ideas...
