the problems that i know we have -- how to inhibit suspend properly,
how to avoid race conditions when suspending or resuming, are well-known
problems that android's wakelocks and the new kernel infrastructure
are aimed at addressing.  so i'm confident that we'll have better tools
to solve those problems than we do now.

but i do need to read that thread more carefully.
