Isn't the issue that the user did *not* ask for it, as KDE uses the
screensaver as part of random, against xscreensaver's defaults?

Perhaps a random user can not be bothered to look at every detail of
every package on the system... When installing the xscreensaver package,
there won't be many people who check out information about *every*
screen saver in it beforehands. And people selecting random screensaver
probably don't expect that to crawl the web for external content...

Granted, but it won't include code to hypnotise the user to stare at the
sun either. ;)
