comment change tty login timeout - ArchLinux
Regarding your point 2. -- the practical import of doing this is so my 4-year old can manage to type in her 9-letter password before being thwarted. Re your answer in its entirety, please find it in your heart to give me a solution to my question.

comment How to cycle clients
Then you're doing it wrong. client.swap.byidx and client.cycle are subtly yet decidedly distinct. Also what do you mean by "master"?

Are you saying it's not possible to use something lighter-weight, such as dnsmasq or pdnsd? I have edited my question, would you please clarify your answer?

Fair enough. I'm looking for a general solution. Maybe OP should add the "youtube" tag.

Great, didn't know VLC could do that trick. However, I don't see how a YouTube-only fix is a "workaround". There are plenty of other sites on the net that use flash videos and do not succumb to this method. An example near and dear to my heart: ncaa.com/march-madness-live

comment Increase font size in rxvt-unicode without editing ~/.Xdefaults
I think we are defining "persist" differently. Your proposed solution of echoing escape sequences will not persist in a new process (new terminal window). See my (accepted) answer below for a solution that does "persist" in the sense that it outlives its parent process.
