I've been on to the maintainer and he says to report it to DF people.

As far I personally tried apcupsd, the old version was unusuable for me.
Never got around to test the new version for USB UPS though. I still
have it around though.
Oh, damn. Why was it unusable? Because you use a USB cable?

Looks like I still won't be switching to DF any time soon then, there's 
a few packages, which I need, that appear to be semi-broken, and I am 
not clever enough to fix them myself :-)

The maintainer said he was going to look in to updating the package 
*possibly* some time soon, by the way.
