Forgetting about the extra complication of having two prefence menu
entries for now.. and just concentrating on the more low level
packaging issues....

control-center is going to have to drop the requirement on xscreensaver...
or  xscreensaver-base is going to have to drop the obsoletes on xscreensaver...
or both.

That obsoletes in xscreensaver-base is a problem as long as anything
is trying to provide/require xscreensaver.
