I thought we agreed on pm-utils preferably becoming the common
infrastructure for suspend/hiberante/... across distributions. So why not
just tell them the same?

HAL can just copy it over to its own namespace, then it's owned by HAL.

Yes, I think so. I'm not arguing about the general idea about the error
handling. I just would like to see pm-utils quite separate from HAL. It's
easier to maintain and less complex this way IMO.
