We already have the "Hibernate" option in gnome-control-center. And, to
be honest, the main issue with enabling SuspendThenHibernate is
hibernation itself not working in the first place.
But why don't we disable those at the systemd level then? If we know they're
broken, they will be broken for every use case. Disable it in systemd in
Fedora, the "Can*" functions in systemd return false, and the options don't
appear in GNOME.
So, I don't really see that we would be adding a lot of extra
to the control-panel.
It would get added to the configuration panel, and be selectable, and be
broken. It doesn't make anything better, it just shifts the blame to
the user who's supposed to know that hibernate is broken.
