GNOME Power Manager in 2.16

Just a few days ago, gnome-power-manager was accepted as part of the GNOME desktop 2.16 release.

This makes me happy. I've been getting some overwhelmingly good feedback about this, and I'm hoping being part of the release proper means we get more HIG compliance, more translations, and more polish generaly.
I would like to thanks all the contributors to gnome-power-manager over the last couple of years, and all the people that have helped me and pointed the project in the right direction. And for all you translators, you rock.
