Oh, cool. Then we don't need "real" suspend (i.e., without reset)
until we want to do things like VoIP. Thanks !

At least on the Openmoko side, it's really bad. There isn't even a
clear statement from our application people as to which network
manager would be the best to use - they all appear to have one major
issue or another, and everyone's afraid of touching them it seems.

So I'll bring this up on the devel list and see if our community can
do better.
