Replace gnome-screensaver with LightDM/Unity7

Registered by Stephen M. Webb on 2013-11-01

The use of gnome-screensaver as the lockscreen for Ubuntu is thematically inconsistent and adds an additional supernumerary moving part to the screenlock story. It should be replaced by the use of lightdm for the unlock screen and Unity 7 itself for screen blanking (vt switch protection).
