Suppressing the screen saver in a full screen game

Ubuntu 9.04's new notification system is really nice and non obtrusive, 
however it can still get in the way if you need the entire screen. 
Accordingly, the notifications system has been designed to not draw 
notifications when a program such as a movie player is telling the 
operating system to suppress the screen saver.

I propose we enable this functionality for Wine whenever we've switched 
to a full screen mode.  I assume there's also a similar function for 
applications on Windows, so if we haven't done so already we should 
probably implement that and suppress the screen saver then as well.
