I wasn't aware arch had that functionality actually; that should be

right, I believe upstream pm-utils was leaning towards fixing dbus
rather than this hack, but given that I don't believe upstream dbus will
fix the issue soon, we may have to go back to pm-utils upstream and
convince them to take the fix.

The other thing I was going to do was just to ship the pm-utils files in
NetworkManager, thus we can do what we want with them.
