I think you are right but this issue is not related to trying to get
some generic hooking infrastructure in place.  All I did was make the
power hook function calling convention the same as the other hook
types (and update the man page to suit :).  At this point
re-engineering the power management infrastructure is not part of the
scope of work I am trying to achieve :)
