 I guess we could; AIUI the reason to stop shipping the files is because
 people complained that the power button was handled in too many places
 and that this could cause the same ACPI event of the power button to
 a) suspend (as handled by GPM) b) shutdown after resuming from suspend
 (as handled by the acpid script).

 Clearly, the two packages handling the even like this is suboptimal,
 but I'm not sure not shipping the scripts is the solution; perhaps we
 should do like acpi-support and disable the scripts when GPM is

 So I guess we should resume shipping the scripts, but disable it when
 gpm is running.  Is that ok with everybody?
