Ok, finally had time to go back and read carefully. And then, with a
little googling, saw someone else's reaction as the same as mine:
apccontrol has a *lot* of options. Does this mean that I need to write a
script names poweroff so that it doesn't shut down, *and* have symlinks to
that from loadlimit, runlimit, doreboot, onbattery, failing, and timeout?

If so, that's ugly....
