So for my use, I'm *pretty* sure I want apmd running, so I can get the 
screen locking behavior I want.

Is there a way I can get xlock (or alternatively xscreensaver) to run on 
suspend, without apmd (and /etc/apm/suspend)?

Preferably, I'd like to do this outside of X too, I was hacking on a way 
to kill and clear my login tty, if I didn't have x/xlock running as 
well, (perhaps later to hook tmux to save current session, etc., a 
million fun ways this can be hooked to make life easy- since it's all 
just shell).
