xscreensaver maintainers: I'm trying to solve #344559 which requests
that gnome-screensaver be able to work with xscreensaver's hacks.
At some point in the past, gnome-screensaver was capable of looking
in /usr/lib/xscreensaver and finding the screensavers automatically,
however according to <http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=317887>,
g-s can no longer do this.
I think that the best way to solve this would be to have xscreensaver
ship the .desktop files along with the hacks themselves. The .desktop
files can be generated automatically as part of xscreensaver's build
process, so the maintenence burden should be slight.
If you agree with this plan I can work on a patch for xscreensaver.
