since nearly every app out there uses its own mechanism to make sure the
screensaver doesnt kick in, you'd have to rewrite xscreensaver ...
note that every app i touched until now has an implementation for
xscreensaver and a different one for kscreensaver, gnome-screensaver is
simply a new implementation that actually needs to be added there, there
is no global reciepe you can use ...
please file bugs on apps where you see it, i agree that a general
solution should be found for all screensavers, but due to the three
different approaches the screensavers currently take this will require
some time and some flexibility from upstream (which you wont see for
xscreensaver) to adopt such a solution.
