Maybe it would be a nice to add something like Jamie Zawinski's (jwz)
XSendEvent based approach. There is complete code in xawtv-3.74/jwz/remote.c

The program has a timerfunc much like the one in the faq. It sports calls
like xscreensaver_command(dpy,XA_DEACTIVATE,0,debug,&err); with some
XA_DEACTIVATE = XInternAtom(dpy,"DEACTIVATE",False); to go along.
