I think this should be achieved with a button that opens
gnome-power-preferences much like the Keyboard capplet got a "->
Accessibility..." button.

Please tell me, how are people going to put their computer to sleep with
GNOME 2.14? Also since xscreensaver wasn't really part of GNOME anyway,
I hardly feel this is a regression. However, from a realistic point of
view all distributions that care about GNOME will most likely ship both
g-s and g-p-m anyway. So I don't really see your point.

Another thing is that g-p-m will most likely be part of GNOME 2.16 and
then we want to change to the link button (because it makes sense) as
that will confuse 2.14 users.
