Gnome Screensaver issues?

I've been following the issues regarding Gnome Screensaver on the  
Ubuntu community forums, and just wanted to raise it here prior to  
the UI freeze (as suggested). In a nutshell, many screensavers  
require options to be configured and the Gnome Screensaver has no way  
of setting these. Performance and responsiveness have also been noted  
as problems.

I tend to agree with the concerns and feel that Gnome Screensaver,  
while great strides forward in usability and integration, may not be  
mature enough for use in the distribution yet.
