    yeah, tell me about it :-p

    during development on MeeGo devices we try to tackle down as much as
    possible the use_time offenders and start by filing bugs to those apps,
    instead of fixing their issues in kernel space.

    if suspend_blockers could at least be transparent to applications, then
    it wouldn't be the best scenario but at least applications wouldn't have
    to be specially written to support that. And like I said, if anyone can
    hold a suspend_blocker forever the idea of "improving use_time" is easy
    to break, but then someone replied "anyone holding a suspend_blocker
    will show up in UI", and again I say you don't need suspend_blockers to
    have a fancy UI showing which processes are waking up the processor.
    Powertop already gathers that information, you just need to make a fancy
    UI around it.
