I say junk the 'nicer' ones into the subpackage. Just a base:
xscreensaver that is blank and 'fedora'  and nothing else.

All the extra frilly screensavers get into a xscreensaver-extras

Sounds fine to me as long as I don't have a list of, conservatively,
180+ screensavers in the current pkg.

Speaking of that isn't there someone in the HIG people who thinks that a
select list of 180 options is an abomination?
