    Yes, it matters. You don't necessarily know whether to turn the screen
    on until the app has had an opportunity to process the event. This is
    exactly the kind of use case that suspend blocks are intended to allow,
    so alternatives that don't permit that kind of use case aren't really
    adequate alternatives.
