This /may/ not achieve quite the behaviour that Frostyfrog is after. By
example, I would appreciate if slock was able to only show failcolor when the
buffer is empty and a key which actually modifies the buffer was pressed.

However, I said "may not achieve", so we'll have to see whether Frostyfrog is
satisifed with the behaviour of slock when failonclear is set to False.
