Trying to think as a user for a minute, I find it counterintuitive to 
think that my cpu will run at a lower speed unless I pump in some magic 
smoke (that I may or may not know exists). I agree that power saving is 
a very important feature, and I think Robert's idea is a good one, but 
_until it actually exists_, full speed is the appropriate default.
