Note you can already do this with gconf-editor by modifying

but there isn't a way in the UI to do what you want to do.

I guess before it could be added to the UI we would need to think about the best
way to present it the user.  I'm not sure the xscreensaver style checkbox by
every item is the right way to go.

Anyway, this is definitely upstream fodder.  Can you file there and post a link
to the bug here?
Comment 2 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2007-03-31 05:21:51 EDT
OK, will file RFE with upstream (Gnome bugzilla)

I'm personally happy to learn that gconf-editor will let me do what I want, and
I'll explore the gconf stuff a little deeper now that I have your pointer to the
appropriate place.

We'll track this via the upstream bug.
