	OK, I am the  OP, and I get what looks the same to me : 

Removing:
 gnome-screensaver                  i386     2.24.1-2.fc10      
installed   3.4 M
Removing for dependencies:
 fedora-screensaver-theme           noarch   1.0.0-3.fc10       
installed    18 k
 fedorainfinity-screensaver-theme   noarch   1.0.0-1.fc8        
installed   102 k
 rss-glx-gnome-screensaver          i386     0.8.2.p-1.fc10     
installed   4.3 k
 xscreensaver-extras-gss            i386     1:5.08-5.fc10      
installed    43 k
 xscreensaver-gl-extras-gss         i386     1:5.08-5.fc10      
installed    28 k

	So suppose I tell it yes. From other posts in this thread, it 
seems I would still have some part of xscreensaver. What, in non-
technical terms, would it look like? 

	Could I still have my colliding galaxies, my bouncing cow and 
flying toasters, my cage and cubestorm, my decayscreen and endgame, my 
flow and knots, my grav and hypercube, interaggregate and Klein bottle, 
my molecules and mountains, .....?
