Package: acpi-support
Version: 0.140-5
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

would it be possible to add xautolock to the list of checked screen lockers
(file: /usr/share/acpi-support/screenblank)?
It has a neat option that is -locknow for instant screen locking. This would
make it possible to use an alternative screen locker like slock or i3lock for
screen locking instead of xtrlock.
