Then everything is fine.

Yes, there are lots of them. No, we don't want them here for inclusion (unless
we suddenly start packing up ugly workarounds for every driver / software
package in pm-utils. If we do, i am immediately out of business).

For SUSE, i pushed out all the ugly hacks for e.g. intel wireless etc. out
to the wireless driver packages, and many users have used hooks to do their
special custom thing on their specific machines (i get this from feedback for
http://en.opensuse.org/Pm-utils and through bugzilla every day).
