That's great! I have a theory that so many screensavers are included by default not because there is an army of ardent supporters advocating their inclusion, but because they are part of some upstream programs that nobody has thought to remove yet. Swapping them out for some more included wallpapers will really improve the user experience. The first act of personalization for most users is to change the wallpapers, and the first place most users go to do that is the included alternate wallpaper folder.

Actually, I can look into removing some screensavers and stuff. I'll talk to
some people and see what the possiblities are.
