Looks like Ubuntu has split the hacks from the xscreensaver package to
xscreensaver-data and gnome-screensaver simply recommends
There is an open bug report about splitting xscreensaver, bug 344568,
but the maintainer have not given his opinion yet.
In the mean time, maybe we can activate support in gnome-screensaver and
only recommend xscreensaver-gl and rss-glx (a small change in the
Recommends of xscreensaver-gl is needed first)? This would at least
satisfy Xavier's request for gl hacks.
