IMHO this would be not general enough because everyone potentially uses
different means for screensavers. One way would be to implement an
option to start an arbitrary command at startup (?). But I think this
would rather be something for the FAQ, and people could use a
convenience startup script like


xset -dpms s off

btw: The next version with the manual timer (tapping) will be ready
soon. Sorry for the delay.
