That won't really make a difference, since control-center 2.2.x
*breaks* the version of xscreensaver-gnome in sarge.
Maintainer: Karl Ramm <email@example.com>
Replaces: xscreensaver (<< 3.33-4)

control-center 2.2.x is blocked because it does not provide libcapplet0

Well, if the RC bugs in xscreensaver apply to 4.0.5 and 4.0.10
equally, which I suspect, than couldn't those bugs be tagged
"sarge,sid"? Would this tell the testing scripts to pass through the
newer version as both of them are equally buggy?
