Well, it has a Matrix-like mode now (:

Anyway, I've been an xlockmore guy for ages too, mainly because
Xscreensaver didn't have a password-protect mode. Also, I read some of the
docs for the latest version, and I don't recall that it used to have that
daemon mode - Xlockmode doesn't have that, you have to run an external
progam to lock automagically (I use xautolock). 

Xscreensaver seems to have mode hacks, too... I think I'll use some of my
goofing off time at work today to switch and see if it's as good (I have
all these custom configurations for xlock...)
