Also why should that code on one device kill my uptime and on the
other machine (my wall-plugged desktop) work just well? That doesn't
sound right.

Clearly opportunistic suspend is a workaround for battery-driven devices
and no general solution. But it is not specific to android. At least
not inherently. It could be useful for any embedded or mobile device
where you can clearly distinguish important functions from convenience
functions.

I really can't understand the whole _fundamental_ opposition to this
design choice.

Cheers,
Flo
