kde's screensavers should be (are?) independant of xscreensaver.
If you want to use the xscreensaver option, you must have xscreensaver
If you want to install xscreensaver, you must install exactly one of either
xscreensaver-nognome and xscreensaver-gnome, in order to satisfy the
dependancies of the xscreensaver package.
KDE users should use xscreensaver-nognome over xscreensaver-gnome, if they do
not have gnome installed.
It seems that installing xscreensaver-gnome may cause (some) duplicate entries
in the (x)screensaver list when using KDE.
Not quite sure what my point is, but I hope that clarifies things somewhat.
