So, is it the case that there's no way to disable the "fade to black"
feature before the screensaver kicks in? If that is true, then
gnome-screensaver is getting the boot. I can't take the
seizure-inducing flickering caused by the broken fade-to-black on my
system (nor can my office-mate).
Also, wrt to the screensaver controversy, it isn't one that I've
followed so I can't really take sides. However I was very fond of the
old matrix screensaver in xscreensavers. I liked that it could be
configured to "find" a phone number of my own choosing. So, there are
some screen savers that have sophisticated options for which
"configurability" is appropriate.
