Public bug report changed:

And there are screensavers that grab your desktop (or any other image): lack of settings option leaves them with "control picture" (see for example "slider"), which is 1. confusing, 2. far from professional. If we want to oversimplify, my suggestion is to preconfigure configurable screensavers (grabbing desktop image for example, this is probably what most of the users expect anyway)
(power users that can replace gnome-screensaver with xscreensaver anyway)

And still, leave at least an option to enable/disable specific
screensavers - not only GL screensavers are resource-eating (Distort is
one of the examples)
