Run a program on X inactivity

xidle uses the XScreenSaver3 extension to receive inactivity events when a timeout is specified, running a specific program after the elapsed time. xidle also monitors the very corner of the given position for pointer activity and runs a program if the pointer sits there for more than the specified number of seconds. This behavior is always present, whether -timeout is specified or not.
