It's a Powerbook Pismo, and when I close the cover, I'd like for the screen to be locked so that when it's opened again I have to type in a pword.

pbbuttonsd has something called a cover action, which would be the perfect place to have this happen it would seem, however invoking something like xscreensaver from within pbbuttonsd doesn't seem to be an option.

This has to be possible, right?

There is a script called pmcs-pbuttonsd in /etc/power, you should be able to get what you want by modifying that.
