0000021: Feature request: idle trigger
It would be nice to have an event triggered by a specified time of "user inactivity". An application would be bubble help, or updating a thumbnail, or a screen saver.
"user activity" would be all user input events, that is mouse and keyboard events. Is there an easy way to wait on all of these? For example, when a screen saver is active we'd want to wait for *any* user activity:

saveScreen
  <onTimeout: 60 for: #anyUserActivity>
  "triggered if #anyUserActivity is not sent for a period of 60 seconds"
  self displayScreenSaver.
  self waitUntil: #anyUserActivity
