Perhaps... it would seem more sane to use the "blank" hack, and listen
on DBUS for when to execute your backlight switch.

Something else that needs to be considered from a screensaver point of
view is the multimedia buttons. You should be able to use these even
when the screensaver is running. Ideally they could work even when the
screen is locked, a gconf key could have something like
This would allow John in the cubicle next door to turn your music down
when you've gone to lunch.

The plan is to first get a working prototype that will screensave, read
basic gconf options, and lock/unlock a screen. After that we can value
add with features for administrators, extra gconf keys, you name it...
