What we need is a sequence that means `reset the timeout now'.  I
could have dpkg output that every time it start processing a new
package, if TERM=linux.  (I'd rather not hardwire things like that,
but if there's no other way ...)

Alternatively it might be a better idea to change the screensaver to
swallow the first keypress after blanking.
