Package name is misleading

Bug Description

“Caffeine” was originally named as it was a reimplementation of the similar OSX app. Now it no longer does the same thing (after weeks trying to debug why my system wasn't turning the screen off when a program was fullscreen, I accidentally discovered that's this package's actual purpose!), so it should be named something else.

You manually activate it from the indicator. Add /usr/bin/caffeine-indicator to your startup so you don't have to fish for it. Very similar to the OS X implementation at that point, except it doesn't offer any timers, just on/off.

I think it's sufficiently similar, when you use caffeine-indicator. If something about the documentation is unclear, please suggest improvements.
