The latter 2 suck hard, xssstate is useful in scripting and allows me
to keep using slock.
You seem to have taken me mentioning alternatives as some kind of
personal insult.

I think you missed the point.

Many synaptics users have xorg synaptics installed anyway, and in this
case 3 lines of sh is both easier and simpler.
If all you want to do is enable/disable your trackpad then your tool
has possible merit.

synclient has problems of it's own, being part of xorg synaptics which
sits at 6k sloc,
but it allows other useful things like configuring multitouch and scrolling.

If you want to continue this charade then email me personally so we
don't pollute this list further.
