   -  if olpc-powerd is being used, then any activity which used to ask
   ohmd to inhibit suspend via dbus needs to use a new mechanism.  the
   new mechanism is completely trivial, but needs implementing. 
   (see the large comment block in /usr/sbin/powerd for how it
   works.)  i don't know how commonly this feature was used, before.
