This looks OK. It fills %p in battery-mode-line-format and gives
an equal value with "acpi -b". 

Thank you. I may try to retrieve other (available) information from sysfs
interface by looking your code. I don't know if Sven has anything to
add about interface though. 

I think the interface change is thought for multi-battery systems. If battery.el
should support them, battery.el interface should also change I think,
which is, IMHO, not necessary at the moment.
