Yes!  Totally agree.  I've been wanting _real_ FE idleness handling (as
opposed to my hack which looks at GPU interrupts) for a year or two now.

By real, of course that's idleness as determined by MFE not playing
anything or being interacted with at a menu (although that gives me an
idea about how to monitor LIRC and factor that into my FE idleness hack

And of course, configurable idle action, just as it is for the BE, but
it really ought to inform the BE that it's idle rather than the BE then
having to have some sort of FE inactivity timer to decide that it's
idle.  Although the BE should also have such an inactivity timer to
account for FEs that just go AWOL.
