    Well it's not going to go anywhere unless you want to look after it so
    there's not much point in worrying about that :-)

    The problem on my computer with my (re)implementation of
    APM_IOC_REJECT is that the screen goes into powersaving when the user
    suspend is received, then turns it back on when APM_IOC_REJECT is sent
    by apmd. Stephen said this was something wrong with my implementation
    (???). Anyway it is fixed in my pmpolicy patch, and I don't need no
    daemon so the code is a lot cleaner and simpler (no binary magic
    number interfaces).
