Indeed, I could write a script. I even think with the scripting possibilities in LS, almost anything could be done. However, if I had the time and the motivation to write a script, I could probably also code a module :-)
What I was looking for was a module that I could plug into my theme with one or two lines of code and then tweak as I find time and motivation. I guess that's still something worth thinking about for LS.
For instance, I have rainmeter installed for my other account on the laptop (used for presentations). I took my just a few clicks and I had a battery meter (but it crashes when I pull the AC plug). A port of that functionality would be very useful, I think.
