Clear the screen after eips - DEVELOPERS CHALLENGE!

I find annoying the inability of clearing eips-writed areas. I've tried different approaches, for example this one:

Code:
lipc-set-prop com.lab126.powerd powerButton 1; wait 1; lipc-set-prop com.lab126.powerd powerButton 1;
It works but is reeeeally ugly (enter screensaver mode - exit screensaver mode).

Who will be able to find a solution for this dilemma?

Let the "Best Developer Challenge" begin!!!!

First and only prize:
Glory and honour for all the eternity!

For others:
Shame and pity

UPDATE:
Challenge finished, and the winner is...

BRIANINMAINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think geekmaster or twobob had a script to save the state of the screen and restore after a call to eips. I can't seem to find it now, but it was maybe early this spring?

here it is!

Yup, which is also roughly what I did in the ScreenSavers KUAL extension to preview the current active screensaver .

dump fb => show stuff => restore fb => refresh screen (ioctl/eips '')
