Turning off screens in a multiscreen setup

Hi all,

I suppose I should start by asking "does g-p-m already turn off single
idle screens in a multiscreen setup?". Since I don't have such a setup
myself, I don't know, but if g-p-m does, then you don't have to bother
reading the rest of this e-mail. :-P

This is following up on bug #347737 filed against Totem
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=347737), which asks that
other screens be turned off when one goes fullscreen in Totem. I was
wondering if it might be a better idea to make this desktop-wide, and
have idle screens turned off if they had no applications running on
them. They could then be turned on one-by-one again when the mouse moves
on them (as with a normal setup). As I said already, I don't have a
multiscreen setup, so I've got no idea what I'm talking about really,
but I thought it would be interesting to bring up anyway.

Additionally, I apologise if I've posted this in the wrong place --- it
was a juggle between g-p-m, g-s, and GTK/GDK. I hope I chose the right
one. :)
