I think that first one was what I was trying to find, but couldn't
remember the name of or figure out what it was, when xorg's
XFree86-Standby key bug hit.  I believe that's what I used b4, on Mdk. 
Only I couldn't figure out what I needed on Gentoo, and the documentation
wasn't helping, so I just did it the hard way, which I could at least
figure out by trial and error.

See, /that's/ why decent documentation would be a /good/ thing! <g>
