I agree with you, but I know some people don't like to write the
hardware clock on shutdown or suspend; perhaps the apm package
maintainer thinks this way.  Anyway, with your script the system will do
the same thing when init/resume or shutdown/suspend.

I don't know for sure, but what do you want to configure?. You can use
some options on the command line, and you can do some things changing
the /etc/apm/apmd_proxy script; take a look at this file and the apmd
manual page.
