FYI: I started investigating one bug and are working on it. It's not a trivial 
one, so after not fixing it instantly I moved it back, but I will work on it. 
For me KWin has higher priority.

If you ask for maintainers: I consider Marco and me as the maintainers of the 
new screen locker, the old screen saver HACK (which you seem to be using) is 
something I consider as deprecated as legacy and it would be really awesome if 
someone who wants to use them would step up to maintain them. I voted for 
dropping them (see my blog for reasons).
