If we are going to install something by default, it should probably be
xscreensaver. And yes, I'm biased because I maintain that port, but the
client-server model of xscreensaver make it a better choice if actually
keeping the screen locked is part of the goal. :)

Given that the thing has existed to date just fine with no dependency to
fulfill the "dangling invocation" can I suggest adding xscreensaver as
an optional dependency, or if people feel strongly about offering
xlockmore to offer them both, with the requisite logic to prevent
installing both? Bonus points if we can detect that one of them is
already installed. :)
