Hm, it's possible that other screensavers can report their state over
d-bus (kde screensavers?) -- though i don't think xscreensaver is among
them, since it doesn't appear to use dbus.  if anyone wants to propose a
patch for detecting another locked d-bus-enabled screensaver, i'm happy
to review it.
