One simple tweak that I think all the screensaver programs are missing is a
configuration option that would let me disable specific screensavers -
without uninstalling entire packages. Those screensavers that do cute
things purely by deforming a portion of the screen are a security hazard. 
When I turn on the screensaver, nobody should be able to see what I've been
working on.
