I think you misunderstood me - i was arguing, why i implemented it this way,
making $S2DISK_BIN configurable but not $S2RAM_BIN.

I was _not_ saying that only one of s2disk or s2both is useful.
But to get support for both, we need an additional "pm-safesupend" or
something like that, with an associated method for calling it from HAL.

My implementation just did not cover all that, and the $S2DISK_BIN variable
was the "but i want to use s2both!"-bandaid.
