Proposal: D-Bus service to watch user activity (for IM messaging away and so on)

Hi list,

currently Kopete has an implementation of user activity monitoring which
enables its auto-away feature. Konversation and friends could use the
same mechanism. The Nepomuk strigi service also has a very crappy user
activity monitor and could use a better one.

Thus, I though about a D-Bus service which does exactly that and emits
signals like



and the latter could either be emitted in regular intervals or clients
would register to get events at a certain frequency.

How about it? Is this something that would be acceptable as a KDED
module even?
