Forgetting about the extra complication of having two prefence menu
entries for now.. and just concentrating on the more low level
control-center is going to have to drop the requirement on xscreensaver...
or xscreensaver-base is going to have to drop the obsoletes on xscreensaver...
Oh, I wasn't aware of the xscreensaver requirement in control-center.
Ray said nothing depends on xscreensaver...
Yes, that needs to go.
That obsoletes in xscreensaver-base is a problem as long as anything
is trying to provide/require xscreensaver.
