Hmmm. When I come think about it, all vital resume information is
already saved in the RTC. It is replicated on the disk, just in case the
power is lost, for example if you change batteries.

So "all" we need to do is to track the changes in the RTC, and only save
to disk of anything other than the resume info has changed.

On the other hand, this makes it a pain for those who really wish to
save the resume info on disk, because they intend to change batteries...
