Ah, that's what I was asking for! But, I like the /proc/interrupts

I may later need a solution for Solaris and other platforms, and xautolock
is the only one I have so far. Thanks!

It's almost free. There's even a note in the copyright field quoting the
author saying it "should be ok" for debian releases. There must be still
some detail that the DFSG doesn't like.
