Removing the (outdated and unmaintained) Energy KCM

Hi everyone:

I just wanted to know if we could finally remove the old and
unmaintained Energy KCM (System Settings-Display-Power Control) as the
PowerDevil module and KCM now handle this (in different profiles) and
it is more feature-wise.

The only thing I'm not sure about is if PowerDevil can handle power
management on Desktop PCs (as I don't use a Desktop PC for KDE, and I
associate "powerdevil" with "notebook"). If Dario Freddi could confirm
that fact, should we proceed removing the old module ?

- Am I missing any other step before doing this ? - According to there seems to be a file using the configuration that the
Energy KCM sets... ("DisplayEnergy" on "kcmdisplayrc") : . Is
that code still used ?
