In Dapper, gnome-screensaver is a dependency of ubuntu-desktop and so it cannot be uninstalled without consequenses.  Right now I have both installed; this is a sub-optimal solution.

I would recommend that the Ubuntu developers either make their own reduced version of xscreensaver or transplant this feature into Ubuntu's version of gnome-screensaver.

As it exists now, gnome-screensaver is oversimplified to the point of being barely usable.
