* pm-utils has no provision for halting the suspend/resume process if
a hook fails. Adding naive support for this is easy, getting it
right is less so.
* suspend-hybrid handling is less than optimal. The current code
assumes it is always resuming from suspend. While this is probably
the common case, we need to take into account that we will also
sometimes be returning from hibernate and run the hooks
accordingly. Otherwise, suspend-hybrid and video quirk handling are
going to interact very badly some of the time.
* There are no provisions for configuring the tuxonice backend.
Tuxonice has lots of things that can be tuned, but doing so would
end up duplicating alot of the tuxonice project's hibernate script.
We should talk to their maintainers about merging common
* If a hook needs to handle parameters passed from the command line,
it has to do that on its own. A simple parameter-parsing engine
might come in handy.
* Currently, we really only handle suspend/resume. The
powermanagement system should use some maintenance. Should we also
handle other powermanagement-related tasks?
* Beef up the abstraction layer between the hooks and the pm-utils
core infrastructure. We should work on making that API stable
* pm-utils to become the default low-level userspace power management handling
infrastructure for the majority of Linux (and mabye other
unixalikes) distributions. The core pm-utils infrastructure is
already fairly distro-agnostic, leveraging it to be os-agnostic
should also be possible. We should get it to the point that any
program that needs something to happen when running a power
management task uses our functionality instead of rewriting their own.
* Merge the man pages for pm-action/pm-is-supported/pm-powersave from Debian
(which are written in docbook xml). Also convert the existing man pages from
docbook sgml to docbook xml.
The man pages should be improved to document new configuration variables,
contain examples how to write hooks etc.
* Provide an "--auto" option for pm-suspend, which tries to get the quirks from
hal. Add an option (let's call it "--store-quirks-as-fdi" for now), which
allows to easily generate an fdi file with the quirk parameters passed to
