Fwitw (and sorry for hijacking), I recently tried xprintidle (with a forked upstream, different from the one in the AUR) and it seems to work. This might still be used in a script to lock screens automatically under X, but it's clunky. I'd much prefer a more complete solution, as xautolock is aging (not so well) and at least in my case produces undesirable defuncts from time to time. xss-lock seemed too broken at that time, so I never used it. Are there any other alternatives not mentioned in the wiki?
I wrote xidle_dispatcher  myself, which I basically hook up to slock. Another tool I know of does basically the same thing, both being more or less what xssstate.c does.
