I don't understand why use appdefaults :-?, why don't use a much more
easy way to i18n his application?
This way the only solution is to get translated the XScreenSaver.ad file
and it's very hard to update the translations :-(

I'm working on it, but I don't like this solution because we should
update our xml files every time that XScreenSaver updates its
XScreenSaver_ad.h file. I also don't like the fact that XSreenSaver
don't use our widgets to ask your password, I think that this way we are
confusing the GNOME user. It's possible to get those changes into the
main xscreensaver module? (with, for example, a --enable-gnome switch to
only get those changes at building time and let use the actual widgets
by default, something like dia, that could use plain gtk or gnome).
