Xautolock has a sloccount of 1470 vs. 331 for xgetlock. In those 1470
there is some IPC mechanism, various heuristics to detect states like a
newly started up server so it won’t react. Xgetlock allows to script
this to the real needs, when it is needed. Other tools, like xdotool
etc. could be used for advanced options, but these features are not
there by default.
