Review request for kde-workspace and Aaron J. Seigo.


Document use, avoid boolean trapping.

Repository: kde-workspace


Adds a second screen locking keyboard combination to provide advanced selective lock signaling to running applications for such things as pausing MPRIS2 players in Kmix to setting away status in Telepathy. Applications are connected differently from standard screen saver signaling which is decidedly a blunt handled instrument.

A SecondaryActiveChanged signal for in addition to ActiveChanged would be great to have moved into with the above goal and cross-desktop in mind. Right now the implementation sits happily in org.kde.screensaver.
