Current linux console screen blanking period?

I know it is possible to use 'setterm -blank <value>' to change the
current screen saver timeout value in the linux console.  But is it
possible to get the current value out of the console?

I want to disable the screen saver while some task is being done, and
then enable it again with the original value when the task is done.
Is this possible?
