I'm not sure if it's worth putting more goo in the kernel for this.

At one time I ran a shell script via cron which just did a "who" and
echoed a "^L" to screens which have been idle after a while.  If you
want to get fancier, you can determine the current screen being displayed
(a program recently posted to comp.unix.xenix shows how) and just clear
that one if it's been idle for a while.
