They'd need to pop the main can and fit a tantalum cap in there that
doesn't really fit into a place that doesn't really exist for it.

Unfortunately it was specified very late in the day -- too late -- that
GTA02 should show charging LED state from OFF.  The only way to get
close to that with existing hardware is bring up the CPU on insertion.
Even so we didn't make code to keep LED up in suspend that's also needed.

On most rootfs, it will suspend again if you leave it alone, so the
medium-term result is very close to if you remained off.
