It is by design, and all code has been removed from gnome-screensaver in
commit 76d2c9ff6acf4a98bfa1569a62fafe14e89f413e (although in 2010 there
was a SummerOfCode project on Clutter screensavers).
There are plans to kill gnome-screensaver completely in gnome 3.2,
splitting its functionality around (some in gnome-shell, some in
gnome-session or gnome-settings-daemon), at which point it should become
possible to write a themed screensaver extension for gnome-shell.
