as I'm somebody with desklock-related PAM problems, I naturally have interest in something like this. On the other hand... I'm not an e-developer and cannot decide whether it'll make it into the code. I must admit I haven't tried the patch (relying on xlock atm.), but would like to see the e-devs having look at it.
