Marking as "Won't fix", since user configuration and installed applications aren't removed when upgrading. If having both applications installed at the same time produces other bugs or regressions, please file separate bugs for those.

No, you didn't get the point. ToZ does not want that the install procedure forces light-locker/screensaver on the users by default, thinking they could need it. There should be a way to select either of them, both of them, or none of them at all.
