Well based on some of Dario's clarifying emails it sounds like you will still 
be able to change the power management settings to do this, but you'll have to 
do this by changing the profile options for whatever the currently-detected 
profile is, e.g. if you were on AC power you'd just go and change the "on AC 
power" profile.

So while it may be a bit different it sounds like you can still do the same 

Either way the code is mostly available so I suppose it's easier to talk about 
what's there than to debate about what's "going to be there". ;)
