Bug Description

Per the SoftwareUpdates spec [1], when on battery power, the Software Updater should show the same battery icon as the power indicator does. But Software Updater doesn't have access to that information today.

Currently, this is calculated in the indicator directly via indicator_power_device_get_gicon(). But it would be convenient to allow other apps to get this same information.

Maybe move that function to some shared library. Or split the indicator into separate service and menu components like most of the other indicators.

Hey Lars, I'm assigning that feature request to you, since it seems you will be doing work on indicator-power, feel free to reassign to Charles or somebody else if that makes more sense though

I guess that's going to be resolved once the new upower lands:
