Thanks to the beautiful simplicity of the Linux /proc directory I was
able to find:
The "charging state" field there will contain "charging" or "discharging".
Now if we can turn up a Win command line solution I'll write a handler
for this that'll make it convenient to get this info on all three platforms.
