As detlef pointed out about the screensavers, there does seem to be a
few valid cases for this. Maybe support for embedding could be put
inside of the existing explorer? I'd like to add support for Windows
screensavers. A while back I submitted a patch that needs some rework
for xdg-screensavers but I expect users will want to also be able to
use the native ones.
