There's currently no locking method in SHR. If you're able to build a
bb recipe for a locking system, I'd be glad to include it in the

Currently, this is a really nasty thing to do. As IMHO, this isn't
frameworkd job. It shouldn't (IMHO again) take precedence over the
window manager on X. And as for this, currently, AUX and POWER don't
emit X keystrokes, which prevent us from associating any kind of
locking thing through illume.

A locking system like zedlock could be tied to AUX, but it's a
workaround, not a real solution...
