Two notes:

1. Shouldn't we add a "time until wakeup" argument to the suspend call? I
   imagine a vcr application calling suspend with this argument to wakeup
   and start recording. Yes, something we can add later on.

2. You are calling one section "compulsory basic interface". So in case
   you don't have a real power management application such as g-p-m or
   kpowersave on the desktop, but of course still need the shutdown and
   reboot interfaces, someone else (the desktop base) has to implement all
   of the others too? That seems unfeasible to me. Or am I getting
   something wrong here?
