User Idle Detection API

Project Member Reported by jsb...@chromium.org, Aug 29

Issue description

There's a chrome.idle.* API that allows chrome apps to detect when the user is active or idle, and when the screen is locked. 

We should expose something similar to the web for use by chat apps, etc.

Rough sketch at: https://github.com/inexorabletash/idle-detection

 
Components: -Blink Blink>Scheduling
Components: -Blink>Scheduling Blink>Input
This is not idle as in CPU activity but idle as in "is the user generating input activity".

So closer to input than scheduling.

Slipping by at least a milestone; will likely hand off to new owner.

Created a chromestatus feature. LMK If I got some of the fields wrong here (e.g. is category > user input the best one?).

Made @jsbell an owner, so feel free to change as appropriate.
