I never really looked at acpi-support because for the laptops I have, I
had no use for it. pm-utils now, is mostly some glue between HAL and
s2disk/s2ram, all be it with possibility to hook in all kind of hacks.
Reading the wiki page above, there is some functionality not present in
pm-utils (yet). When this is added to pm-utils, of course I'll
integrate it.

I'm kind of busy right now to pick-up porting acpi-support
functionality to pm-utils. And if the Ubuntu people want to do that,
I'm all for it;)
