Have you considered simply turning dpms off?  `xset -dpms` should
prevent it from ever blanking, then `xset +dpms` to turn it back on
if you want blanking to resume.

The freedoms that we enjoy presently are the most important victories of the
White Hats over the past several millennia, and it is vitally important that
we don't give them up now, only because we are frightened.
