In current procedure installing xsceensaver may have undesired side effects,
since it displaces gnome-screensaver: Screen would not be locked after resume
from suspend (see http://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4805#c0 ).

Xfce should know how to lock screen, if such a utility is installed and
started. Since the procedure to lock screen varies from a utility to another,
user should tell Xfce how to lock screen, or the set of possible utilities
should be restricted. Currently the latter option is in use: xflock4 script
tests which utility of the three ones known to Xfce is running.
