In that case, you can only have one screensaver.

Here's why:
the xscreensaver works by taking a new window the size of the screen/desktop
puts it ontop of all other windows            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
then starts running whatever screensaver program you choose in that window.

No easy way.
