That command does exist and is unassigned by default (Joseph decides to drink a bottle of black coffee to stay up all night and work on documentation…). I’ll mention this fact in the readme later in August.

Dear Joseph, there should be a command for putting screen curtain on and off and it should be off by default!

Hi everyone,
I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of updates to Add-on Updater and Screen Curtain. Note that these add-ons are proof of concept (prototype) add-ons and should be used to provide feedback to people developing these feature in NVDA Core:
* Add-on Updater (NVDA Core issue 3208): Joseph Lee
* Screen Curtain (NVDA Core issue 7857): Leonard de Ruijter/Babbage B.V.
In case of Add-on Updater, today’s build includes work from checkable list (NVDA issue 7491), thus serving as a field test of that issue. If you have any comments on checkable list, please send them to Leonard.
To check for add-on updates:
1. If you have Add-on Updater installed, go to NVDA menu/Tools/Check
for add-on updates.
2. If you don’t have Add-on Updater, go to community add-ons website
and install Add-on Updater.
3. Due to addition of Screen Curtain in “add-ons under development”
category, you’ll need to check for add-on updates a second time to
update Screen Curtain.
Add-on Updater:
* When new add-on updates appear, the first entry will be selected and
announced automatically.
* Added ability to exclude add-ons from being updated. You can
configure this by going to NVDA menu/Preferences/Settings/Add-on
Updater panel. From “do not update add-ons” checkable list box,
check add-ons you do not want Add-on Updater to update. This was
requested by an add-on author.
Screen Curtain:
* Added a check to make sure magnification wrapper can be imported.
* Added an unassigned gesture to toggle screen curtain.
* Added a toggle menu item in Tools that shows state of Screen Curtain.
