Comment 16 for bug 554069

I think this should be discussed on freedesktop.org and solved in XDG. IMO the wm's have to become more intelligent about what to start. We have to accept that one machine can have all kind of desktop environments installed and thus have a multitude of screensaver engines with autostart files around. One idea would be to have a category Screensaver or Unique-screensaver in the desktop files, and leave it to the wm to pick the one it prefers (or the user prefer) and only start one. Or a mechanism which permits a screensaver engine to detect another has already been started and politely refuse to start.
