Re: xscreensaver capplet.

So this is where it ends, then?  You're just going to ignore me now?

It's been six weeks, and I haven't gotten a response.

I have already said that I am volunteering to do all the coding.
I am not asking you to do that work.

All I need from you is for you to take the time to negotiate with me
the minimum set of changes I have to make to xscreensaver-demo in order
for you to be willing to ship it instead of the other capplet.

You're busy, I'm busy, everyone is busy.  I'm volunteering to do a lot
of work to solve this problem, and I don't even get paid to work on
GNOME like you do.  The least you could do is be willing to discuss it.
I've got a completely unrelated business to run too, you know.

Any proposal that does not have as its first step conversion to a
single code base is completely uninteresting to me.  That's not worth
spending my time on, because I don't believe it will happen, and 
because it does not address my primary complaint in a timely fashion.
