This is actually a good idea (i did not do it in s2ram, and am now
hesitant to add it due to compatibility, but i should have done it).

Looks good. However, it should (of course) use s2ram instead of radeontool,
vbetool, whatever. Would reduce the dependencies to one single package (and
upstream radeontool is seriously broken, i again urge everybody to at least
look at my patches in ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/seife/radeontool to not
switch off the light on their ATI southbridge).

Even more serious is the placement of this in 20video. It needs to be
99ZZvideo to get it running as soon as possible. Otherwise, users will
hit alt-f7 while still waiting for networkmanager to reconnect etc, and
that will lock up machines.
(And that is still too late for running those hooks, but we can only solve
 this once i have the "use uswsusp infrastructure also for suspend to RAM"-
 patches ready to first do all the hacks and afterwards restart userspace
