I'm always amazed, in a sad sort of way, when developers do something that, inevitably, has the effect of reducing the number of users for their product.
This seems a classic case of developers making choices based on reasons important to developers, not users. In this instance, users want suspend to work when they run Gnome. How the developers make that happen is not at all important to them, and ought not to be to the developers. Otherwise, you know, they're coding for themselves.
Here we have the case of a single Gnome developer deciding that his unilateral decision is worth the potential loss to Gnome of every non-systems OS. How does that make sense?
