debxo ohmd testers wanted

I've packaged ohmd for debxo, and done some minimal testing.  I'd like
other debxo users to have a go at it.

ohmd when running provides:

- suspend on power button press,
- suspend on lid close,
- display dimming on idle,
- optional suspend on extended idle.

To test it, turn off any other hardware management scripts you may have,
configure your sources.list for squeeze [1], download the .deb [2],
install it [3], resolve the dependencies [4], and start ohmd [5].  Then
see if the features listed above work.  Let me know the result.

Further details:

[1] edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list and change the word lenny to
squeeze, then run "apt-get update",

[2] use wget or some other method to download the file

[3] install it using dpkg,

	dpkg --install ohmd_0.1.1-6.21.20090304git.quozl_i386.deb

which will generate an error regarding dependencies.

[4] resolve the dependencies using apt,

	apt-get -f install

[5] start ohmd either manually by typing ohmd, or by running;

	update-rc.d ohmd defaults
	invoke-rc.d ohmd start

Packaging improvements welcome.  I'm yet to learn some tricks.
