One obvious alternative is, to generate the quirks database at build
time rather than at runtime on each users computer, and ship it along
with pm-utils.

The only disadvantage of this approach that I can see, is that local
modification (via hal fdi files in /etc) wouldn't be considered.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
