Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

  I think that the typing breaks feature in Gnome should allow the user
  to set up micropauses and typing breaks.

  Other RSI/OOS prevention tools (for example, Workpace) suggest a
  micropause of 10 seconds every, say, 3 minutes and then a Rest Break
  of 5 mins or more every, say, half an hour. Incidentally, Workpace
  suggests exercises during these Rest Breaks.

  I suffer from RSI quite badly and I find that regular micropauses make
  a much bigger difference than the longer breaks. I believe that is
  true for a lot of people, but I cannot point to any research on it; it
  is certainly what we are told by our office OOS prevention person.

  An easy way to provide this feature would be to repeat the same
  options that we currently have, so that the tab read:

  Lock Screen to enforce typing breaks:
  [ X ] Micropause of [10] seconds every [3] minutes
  [ X ] Rest break of [5] minutes every [15] minutes (this is what we already 

  At a later stage, it would be great to have exercise suggestions
  during those breaks, but that is a different, long-term feature

  This really belongs upstream, but I can't find my Gnome Bugzilla
  details at the moment.
