No more cpuspeed in F16

First of all, excuse me because maybe this is not the right list to ask
this. After a clean install of Fedora 16 I have found there is no
'cpuspeed' package anymore. Googling a little I have found an alpha version
of the release notes [1] telling this package has become obsolete and
replaced for cpupowerutils.

I used cpuspeed to slow down the processor if the temperature was very
high, to prevent my old laptop to shut down, which happens when it is at
100% a lot of time, for example encoding a video. My problem is after
reading documentation and googling a lot, I have not found a way to do the
same with the new package. I hope anyone can help. Thank you.
