All in all, gnome-screensaver sounds ( currently at least ) like a giant leap backwards. I fervently hope the voices raised on this list against its inclusion in breezy will be heard, and understood, in the right quarter. No doubt it will be ready for dapper, but please, let's not have it in until it is ready.

Just an opinion from one of the poor souls who has to explain these decisions to puzzled people on #ubuntu...
