Screen saver?

Mac OS X screen saver modules are *not* applications, but a special 
type of bundle containing an Objective C class with several pre-defined 
methods implementing the screen saver module.  OS X produces an 
Objective C view for the saver to draw into, and tells the screen saver 
when to draw a frame, when to start, when to stop, when to display any 
custom settings during configuration, etc.

An OS X screen saver would be virtually impossible to implement 
directly in Rev.
