i have just gotten a back-ups 650, and looked on the apc open source
page to see what their daemon was up to. what i noticed was that
apparently the included cable doesn't work with linux. do you know
offhand whether the apcupsd app supports the one supplied, 940-0020C?
(the apcupsd docs mention supporting a 940-0020B; i'm wondering if
this merely has to do with the age of the docs rather than any real
difference in the cable.)

your wish has been granted.
