	False hypothesis : I don't want to save my screen. Every monitor 
I've ever had to replace died of something else.

	I do want to run xscreensaver: it may owe its name to historical 
accident, but it's still one of the art forms of the Internet, and I 
enjoy it.

Lebenskunst -- Bertolt Brecht.

all the arts, the art of living.")

	All hail Jamie Zawinski et al.!
