Summary: Battery level improvements

Initial Comment:

The battery level is shown linear. Instead of this, it should
be some sort of logarithmical? A typical voltage courve

| xxxxxxxxxxx
| xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
| xxx
| x
| x
|-dangerous voltage---------------------

Hm, it would be cool
to have a function for calculating a percent value out of the courve
with parameters. Then in normal usage, the voltage values are
logged to a text file (as somebody in the list already suggested),
and these values are used to build the function. So the battery filling
degree is adjusted to the actually inserted batteries (behaviour of
batteries changes in their lifetime).


The battery
indicator shown on screen is going up and down quickly. I would
prefer it calculating by let's say

value = actualvalue * 0.05 +
oldvalue * 0.95
oldvalue = value

Then we have a
behaviour like the load in a linux system.
