Why is xscreensaver removed in favor of gnome-screensaver? 
gnome-screensaver does not do DPMS, so my monitor stays on all the time 
boiling the cathodes away. gnome-screensaver doesn't have the eyecandy 
that xscreensaver has. In short, it seems a far less capable replacement.

So why was xscreensaver removed?
