This little tool is a 25 year old screen blanker for Picasso96 systems. It
shows big colored bubbles, which are fading out.

The tool requires a screen with a size of 320x240 pixels and a depth of 8 bit.
Please create such a screen mode, if you haven't already. In doubt, the
blanker opens the most similar screen mode (e.g. 640x480) which can cause that
the bubbles will only appear in the left upper part of the screen.

For inactivity detection it makes use of the commodity interface of AmigaOS.
The time to start can be configured with the tooltype SECONDS_WAIT. The tool
can also be started using the hotkey (default: lcommand l, which is similar to
LAmiga+l).

To interrupt the screen blanker, you can hit any key or press a mouse button.

Requirements:
* AmigaOS 3.1
* a working Picasso96 installation
* a configured 320x240 screen with 8 bit depth

Installation:
Just copy the tool to WBStartup. That's it. It needs to be started from
Workbench, not from CLI.

Currently suppported tooltypes:
* SECONDS_WAIT=<x>: wait for x seconds of inactivity (keyboard and mouse will
  be checked) until the screen blanker starts. Default: 600
* CX_POPUPKEY hotkey to start the screen blanker
