Nah, it would be easy anyway. That interface contains a signal:


We could make this signal be polite and not only difference between AC adapter i
s (un)plugged, but depending on the battery level also. Another signal could be 
added for telling if the AC adapter has been plugged or unplugged.

Despite I agree with the values, consider we can get our hands really dirty with 
the gradient thing. We have gradients everywhere, and I mean, everywhere. I cons
ider for instance the gradient of systemsettings for categories or with dolphin 
with the categorized view, is not harming performance... But if you have differe
nt ideas, just speak up :)
