[development] any work done/planned on Drupal "HIBERNATION"feature

Actually, with a D5 / D6 site with aggressive caching and registration of
members disabled, the load on the host is rather minimal.

But such a mode could be interesting for an other application: backup. A
site thus "hibernating" would not perform any data-modifying query. All
insert/update/delete being frozen, including basic mechanisms like d5
watchdog/d6 dblog or accesslogs, a site could safely be backed up, which is
not really the case currently. I explained it a bit on Larry Garfield's blog
(http://www.garfieldtech.com/blog/drupal-7-database-plans#comment-369 )

I would add one other item.

* a way to turn off login except for the admin. This way you don't
have to worry about member contributed content being added, without
having to go to maintenance mode.
