This is a temporary interface, just to see if we're returning values
properly. Your points below are well taken. People really care about
minutes/percentage remaining. In your opinion should we just report that

a user app do the math, or what?

*info corresponds with the _BIF control method, and *status with _BST. I
thought _BIF stuff is static - is it not?
