Yes, I read that.  But, what I'm concerned about is things like
configuring which directory of pictures are coming from.  As mentioned
in that answer the hacks are calling xscreensaver-getimage which calls
xscreensaver-getimage-file with the directory specified
in /etc/X11/app-defaults/XScreenSaver.  That's likely to be something
people would want to configure, or should be at least their

It seems to be able to do that xscreensaver-getimage needs to be
replaced, or at least modified to take it's configuration from other
places.  It seems like a GConf value or something like that.

I'm not interested in over configuring things, but I think there are a
few things that should be taken outside of the xscreensaver
configuration parameters.
