It's all very well having a screensaver that takes 100% when its
running, but what happens on machines like mine where there are
long periods where the machine is busy building code - our product
takes an hour to build - but the user (me) is not active. A screen
saver would be a _major_ hit on my machine.

So I'm sticking with RC5!! ;-)
