TLP package vs. pm-utils

Hi all,

i'm the author of the TLP power management tool [1].

With the help of my sponsor Andreas Tille i prepared a Debian package
[2] for TLP 0.6.

Older TLP packages – available via my PPA, not in Debian – depend on
pm-utils (pm-suspend) for being called upon suspend/resume events. The
necessity to depend on (and coexist with) pm-utils is imho gone with
Debian's move to systemd.

Looking into the current pm-utils package in Debian testing i noticed
that it is kind of inert: nor is pm-powersave called by upowerd –
changed in upower 0.99.1-1, see [3] –, neither is pm-suspend called by
systemd's sleep.target.

My conclusion would be to add

> conflicts: pm-utils

to my package – associated with the additional advantage that there is
no need to mask pm-utils' power.d/hooks via postinst/postrm anymore [4].

- Am i missing something here?
- Is my conclusion correct?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Regards, Thomas
