I'm using ratpoison WM and using Emacs in full screen. (I suggest you
to try ratpoison, stumpwm or xmonad like "tiling wm"s and find "taste
of emacs" in their screen estate management. By the way, stumpwm has
its configuration in Common Lisp, and xmonad in Haskell, if that makes
a difference for you.)

There are no icons or bars or anything around. There is nothing except
Emacs' mode line to show battery information, hence battery.el. :)

Best Regards,

Emre
