Hrm.  I get the impression that mythwelcome is run before mythfrontend
and can start mythfrontend by a menu selection.  Is that true?  If so,
then once mythfrontend has started will idleness still be triggered?
i.e. I am watching a recording in mythfrontend and hit pause and walk
away -- for many hours.  Will the FE be determined to be idle and
suspend/hibernate during that time?

TBH,  Yet another key press (from mythwelcome to mythfrontend) to get to
where I want to go is not all that attractive, but if it's a workable
solution (i.e. will it even address the use-case I outlined above), it
might be acceptable.
