Yup, noblink is very nice, especially on portables, those darned LCD
screens. I've put a patch that goes in cleanly on at least 1.3.94 upto
pre2.0.9 at:

goliath.mersinet.co.uk:/pub/misc/noblink-for-1.3.94.diff.gz

Basically I think one define got changed, and a few other cosmetic
changes that made the patch supplied with noblink-1.7 fail. You'll NEED
to get that package in addition to the above patch.
