Actually, I was thinking that some of these should be part of a standard library "hardware" module, where you can inquire about the underlying hardware in a platform independent way. I checked around and I was unable to find a definitive package for this, which is a pity, because I consider it an important functionality that should definitely be a battery included. What I have found is, however, plenty of sparse code and packages trying to address this very need.
To throw an idea, maybe it would be a good idea to aggregate all this code in a "hardware" package, stabilize it, and then include it as part of the standard library.
I created a tentative github
I'll scout around to see how to attack the problem, but maybe the ML has some important feedback I am definitely interested in.
