Yes, but it shouldn't be used on anything but the Lombard PMU version
and up, so we can ignore anything that has an external adb connector
(I think, since the Lombard doesn't have one, and I'm pretty sure the
Pismo doesn't)

There is a difference with the trackpad save/restore though, at least
on the Lombard, since it doesn't get reset on sleep/wake cycles, but
only sometimes randomly while powered down.

I guess what I'd want is something like /etc/default/fnset with


and have an init script source this file on startup.

But from reading the thread on linuxppc-dev it sounded like some of
the new ibooks (maybe the TiBook even) like to reset it on sleep/wake

anyone with one of those machines have a comment?
