physlock is an alternative to vlock, it is equivalent to
`vlock -an'. It is written because vlock blocks some Linux
kernel mechanisms like hibernate and suspend and can therefore
only be used with some limitations. physlock is designed to be
more lightweight and it does not have a plugin interface.
