Its not clear to me whether or not gnome-screensaver is actually

No, they aren't mutually exclusive.
If there are no explict file conflicts users might very well be able
to have both installed...or replace one with the other for similar
functionality. Certaintly users will not be able to run both
xscreensaver and gnome-screensaver at the same time..but I don't think
that sort of thing is a blocker from extras. I haven't actually tried
to mock up his specfile yet to see if there are file conflicts though.
No file conflicts.
If the intent is to have installation of gnome-screensaver to always
remove xscreensaver-base automatically..then no..thats not extras
That's not my intend, but until the xscreensaver requirement in the
control-center rpm is changed, I don't see another way installing
both at the same time.
