I wrote small battery monitoring program in python2 for my xmonad.
- very light (for really basic functionality you need only `python2` installed)
- works in background
- no tray icon
- pop-up notifications
- options can be given through the command line
Any questions and suggestions are welcome.

I recommend that you replace "#!/usr/bin/env python" with something less ambiguous.
For example, on Arch "/usr/bin/env python" will get you a python3 shell, on Scientific Linux, it gets you a python2 shell. If you want python2 (which it it looks like you do), then either use "#!/usr/bin/env python2" or, if you need a specific version of python2, something like "#!/usr/bin/env python2.7".
Thanks though, I might use your script on my netbook.

That's the best Changelog I've ever seen

What does it do? Stdout output or does it display a graphical widget?
this is just simple battery monitor
it's run in background and monitor your battery,
sends notifications like popup's, sound if you like, when battery/ac state was changed,
(btw it's play nice with dunst)
can shutdown, hibernate your computer when battery has minimal level...
