	screenblank will blank out xscreensavers hard work.
	It would be nice to have an option to screenblank such that it
would not blank the screen when it's in the 'colour' mode.  This is a
solution that will work well for the colour frambuffers... I suspect
that the non-colour frambuffers don't have as much desire for fancy
screensavers ...
