Timeout prompt screenshot

Add a popup prompt to clear the checkout screen after an amount of time specified in seconds in the syspref CheckoutTimeout.  (Entering no value in that syspref disables the feature.)

I don't understand what problem this solves. It doesn't solve a privacy issue, because another person walking up to the computer to find this prompt can just hit 'Cancel.' It doesn't save the user any clicks--if you want to check out to a new patron you don't have to clear the screen, you just have to scan a new barcode into the form at the top.

I can't find the patch on mailing list, github/koha-PTFS seems unavailable now.
Removing "needs signoff", marking "resolved - later", Jane, if you still have
the patch somewhere, pls reopen this bug

A patch needs to be submitted based on master for this - and either a link
right to the patch or an attached patch is necessary.
