Maybe I misunderstood Matthias' original comment, but I was under the
impression that he did not want to run screensavers as root because of
unaudited code. Which I found quite odd, given that we were talking about
running KDE/Gnome as root in the first place, so having a screensaver on
top could not make things much worse.
