I am happy with this perspective, and I would encourage power 
consumption to remain a high priority.

For what it's worth, I have an OVMS v2 module on an ICE car (my wife's) 
which sat garaged for 3 weeks between semesters at her college. The OVMS 
module had completely drained the 12V battery after about two weeks. 
Obviously I should have thought about that beforehand and disconnected 
the OVMS module, but I think the module hardware should do better than that.
