Note that I said _maybe rework my plans_. Currently, I can't say for sure that 
I'll use session daemons, I admit that I prefer a system daemon for this. But 
It's a promise to give it more thought, since I think that this approach is 
interesting. In the meantime, that would be counter productive to bash a 
valuable effort simply because I have a different opinion for now. That's why 
I want to see it more tailored and I'll even help where I can. That's the 
best way to invest my time to decide which approach (session daemons or 
system daemons) I like best for power management.

By "it", I meant the terminology (suspend+hibernate). So my point is that I 
would be even more comfortable with such a compromise if the underlying 
layers name "suspend to disk" as "hibernate", etc. in their own exposed API 
(think HAL, powersave, pm-utils, etc.).

Sorry for being unclear.
