The wasted space seems of limited importance.
More important is to check which distros have the new powertop.
F16 and F17 seem to have powertop-1.98, which I assume is the new
world order already. But maybe I assume incorrectly.
F14 (which I personally still use, since it doesn't have gnome3) is 1.13.
