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?
