Currently, I use XScreensaverQueryInfo to obtain the idle time, something that 
rsibreak uses too, but I totally agree that for 4.4 it would be very useful to 
have some class in kdelibs (or some addition to a class already there, I'm not 
very sure where this would belong) to do exactly this. There seem to be quite 
some applications that need this information and this should also work on 
systems that don't use X11.
