re: new service, the existing package cpufrequtils (and related package cpufreqd) provides a configurable service to manage governor settings (and other related settings). The old ondemand service was not configurable at all and caused quite a bit of unexpected problems, as well as 'battling' (overriding) the cpufrequtils service when it was installed.

indeed, it was, especially when there were multiple services to (try to) control the settings that conflicted with each other.
