It sounds like he's tired of pressing 1, 2, 3, 4 to answer the phone, 
not worried about the screen dimming....

The attached patch to zhone disables its screen locker by making it drop 
the incoming dbus signal.  Since it's written in python, I applied it 
directly to my phone, then restarted zhone.

Is there a better way to configure zhone than editing its source? ;)
