why do you need to provide "xscreensaver"? Can you not provide
"xscreensaver-base" to solve the problem you want to solve?
Because control-center requires xscreensaver.
If I also provide xscreensaver-base, it will allow gnome-screensaver +
xscreensaver-extras, but upgrading xscreensaver would still remove
gnome-screensaver if both are installed. I could simply make
gnome-screensaver provide and obsolete both "xscreensaver" and
"xscreensaver-base", but I was trying to find a way to allow both of
them installed at the same time.
