yep, to effectively reduce battery drain, is going to take some sort of dynamic governor - straight underclocking is actually more likely to increase battery use than not.

it might be easier + more effective, to rebuild the same version kernel with scaling support patched in, and then simply install the existing SetCPU app, rather than write a new one. might even get a few more frequency/voltage points, both up and down.
