The real problems I have with those:
 * they generate dummy error messages when they fail to probe,
 * they both tick, which is outrageous for power-management plugins,
   even when VLC is inactive,
 * the DBus Inhibit protocol is Broken By Design®.

Note that other than broken interface plugins (including *ahem* Qt4 *cough* 
*cough*), VLC is now tickless when in stopped state.
