I think it's easier if we just patch HAL to call pm-utils to get these,
via a utility provided by pm-utils e.g. the mythical pm-is-supported
utility I talked about. I don't want pm-utils to rely on HAL, nor do I
want it to install plug-in / fdi files in HAL. 

This is similar that HAL's Suspend() method calls pm-suspend directly
too. Does this work for you?
