Personally I like that better than having a new configuration file.
g-p-m also has a gconf key for disabling suspend/hibernate. It's said
to not work ATM (I'll look at this soon ), and of course it can
easily be circumvented, but it might already be enough for most cases

If we know that suspend doesn't work on a particular machine, then
IMHO the best way to fix that would be to add quirks/udev rules to
dk-p to make can-suspend be False. For the "security policy" bit, PK
seems to be just fine?
