WPF Screensaver Template

I was searching for a way to add a line over the top of my toggle button in WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation), and came across this nugget. Apparently you can download the provided VS2008 template, and create a WPF based screensaver! With all the cool things built into WPF/Silverlight, I imagine this could be very useful. I'm thinking something with lots of Mountain Dew cans, and maybe my mug floating around the screen...

I haven't tried the template yet, but I definitely downloaded the screensaver example given there. Oooooooo purple. Actually, if you look at it, it's a crappy screensaver: constantly bright in the middle, dark on the edges, but it is cool. I've heard that monitors don't really need screensavers anymore, so maybe it doesn't matter.
