BTW, I just thought about it again and the screensaver code is here already ;)
There is screensaver that displays random fortunes (executes fortune(6)).
Create fortune's database consisting of credits information and you are done.
Also lots of systems execute fortune at login time.
Insert credits database in the list of default databases (or run fortune -a)
and you will get credits info for random stuff from time to time ;)
Now we need to convice all the distromakers and create a way in
which programs being installed add their credits to the common database.
