I can't believe you actually asked them to rebuild gnome with your pet favorite app! Do you know how many hours it takes to compile gnome? And how many days it would take of testing to make sure that nothing was inadvertently broken?

They are similar, but xscreensaver lets you adjust which screensavers you want and all the settings. Since it is integrated into gnome, the end-user can't do much about this.
So can you have it to where mint will use xscreensaver instead of gnomescreensaver? And while you are making this automatic graphics settings program, you should have it deactivate any screensavers that won't work with your graphics settings. Which should be something much easier to do and manage with xscreensaver. This would be something that would really set mint apart from ubuntu and most other gnome distros.
