[Pkg-acpi-devel] Bug#589625: acpi-support: Providing the option to suspend on lid close would be useful

Hi, on eeepc-acpi-scripts we suspend the laptop by default on lid close.
This is because there were some concerns that leaving it on would lead to overheating; this hypothesis is probably unfounded, but still we would like to keep an option for this behaviour since users are used to it.
We are trying to integrate eeepc-acpi-scripts with acpi-support, but the latter already manages the lid event on it's own, only turning off the screen (or leaving it to the power-manager if one it's running).
Would you accept a patch that, depending on a variable set in /etc/default/acpi-support (off by default) would suspend the laptop?
