so e has had a bit of a mess of setuid root tools to do things that
are essential to maintaing a functioning desktop/laptop/tablet/phone
like device like shutting it down or suspending or sqizzling the cpu
governor or messing with the backlight or... you get the idea.
this has been spread around enlightenment_sys and other special
purpose tools. this now unifies it into a single "always there"
enlightenment_system backend setuid root slave process whose job it is
to do all these things via a stdio protocol in an organized way. this
means latency to do something is lower, but at the expense of
consuming ram and a lurking process. unfortunately the lurking will be
needed soon when i add ddc support to make it even vaguely efficient,
so it's a cost i guess we have to pay now. we'll need this in future
as well for some stats collection and more.
still need to port existing code to use this instead of the existing stuff,
and then remove of the old stuff.
