Bug Description

As from the summary, in Oneiric there is no tool to configure gnome-screensaver.
To me, this seems a regression from Natty, which had the default Gnome screesaver configuration tool.

Just confirming that on upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10 and Gnome 3, gnome-screensaver has replaced xscreensaver on my system, which wouldn't worry me except that for the life of me I can't find any info on how to change any settings, even pick a screensaver rather than have the monitor go on stand-by. All the info I've seen is out of date, so gnome-screensaver-preferences does not exist.
