Nope; if PowerDevil is activated, it's already taking care of DPMS handling

The only dislike that might arise are the fact that if the an user wants to 
kill PowerDevil, he will have no DPMS handling, but I think it makes sense.

Btw, Lithium is an alternative Power Manager (don't know if it's still 
maintained), so it would probably not need that code no longer and roll its 
own configuration for DPMS handling
