Just to add my 2 cents as a user of TOI. Every distro and release I've
tried has one major issue with kernel hibernation. Upon resume when
hibernating large images, there's a residual footprint in swap. Every
further hibernation creates a larger footprint, to the order of an
additional 5-7% each time. Nobody has ever cared in any forum to
explain why or how I might change that.

TOI does not do this and that's why I've been using it on every distro I
can for the past 4 or 5 years. I for one would love to see TOI
capability added to the mainline to improve functionality and
performance. If we can't get all 3 maintained, then 2 that are better
would seem to suffice...
