A mobile user's wishlist

I'm using DragonFlyBSD for a few weeks now on my notebook an miss some pieces 
of software:

1. CPU speed control for Pentium-M (Enhanced SpeedStep driver)
FreeBSD has tools for that: sysutils/est and sysutils/estrcl

2. A module for better synaptics touchpad support
My touchpad works, but from Linux I'm used to do vertical scrolling with the 
right border of my touchpad, like a mouse scroll-wheel. The source code is 
available here: http://web.telia.com/~u89404340/touchpad/

3. A battery tool for KDE
gkrellm is available, but as a KDE user I would like to see something, that 
fits better in the KDE desktop. The DesktopBSD guys have created a nice tool 
for that: 
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/pds.cgi?ports/sysutils/desktopbsd-tools .
There's also a tool in KDE's svn repository: 

May be some devs have a little spare time and could port (some of) this tools 
to DragonFlyBSD. I (and other notebook users) would really appreciate 
that ;-)
