Since Guido covered the other stuff perfectly I'll just comment on this part.

xfsm git master still tries to use UPower for suspend/resume, see:

Which means that if Debian does go to UPower 0.99 it won't do anything.

Guido's SystemD patch fixes that:

Which would fix it for users who have SystemD installed and LoginD running.
My patches just add the pkexec stuff for systems that don't have SystemD.

I tossed it into a branch since the two patches mess with the same
areas of code.

Jenkins is also setup to monitor changes to any branch of the user repositories
so you can verify it at least builds on the systems I've setup for Jenkins, i.e.

On an number of projects, it also tests various configure flags and you can view
the build logs for each system. I'm trying to make it useful :)
