The reason for the minor version bump.  If you think the bump is too
small, say so.

Robustness of the suspend/resume process and better guidance for
third-party hook writers about where their hooks should run.

Right now if a hook dies we have no way of knowing whether it should be
ignored or if it was handling something critical and we need to abort
the suspend.

Neither do we have any guidance that says "if your hook does $STUFF, it
should be $HERE in the hook running sequence."  That sort of guidance
would make it easier for other packages (like NetworkManager) to take
over maintenance of their hooks instead of leaving it up to us.
