Not sure if this is the right place to ask so please ignore if its not.
Are there any plans for supporting any standardised messages on resume from
suspend / hibernate. I have provided a pm-util script that will send a
DeviceKit.Power event on resume but it haven't recieved any love at all :)
It would be very much needed for XBMC as we want resume to act almost like a
complete start (i.e scan folders for changes and such on resume).
