Well, the current git repository on pm-utils.freedesktop.org has what
should be working tuxonice support, where "working" means "I hope
default TOI settings work on your system".

Support for most of the additional configuration that is possible with
TOI (splash screens, reserve pages, file-image mode, whatever) can
probably be added as a tuxonice-specific sleep hook.

Right now we are working on stabilizing the code base after the large
changes introduced over the last month, but patches adding
configurability to tuxonice would be nice to have.
