Fedora also patches pm-utils, everyone needs to use at least one patch imho. 
There are 5 more patches in Fedora and some bug entries in Fedora Bugzilla 
that require even more patches.

I would help forking pm-utils, but I do not dare to do this by myself. I asked 
for cvs commit access to help upstream, but nobody cared / read my mail or 
bugzilla entry, so forking seems to be the only sane way. Unless you want to 
abandon pm-utils, of course.
