Please, everybody who has this problem, email them: kindle-feedback [at] amazon [dot] c0m
Just replace the [] with their respective characters and c0m is obviously com. I just sent in this email:

Hello. I am a new kindle user, having just bought the K3. I am very
happy with the experience so far but have a few feature requests.

1) I'd like the ability to have the "screensaver" be the cover of the
book I am currently reading or, in the case that I am reading a
personal document, the first image in the book. I can see how some
people would dislike this and feel that it is a violation of their
privacy, but you could always make it an option to be toggled.

2) I'd like the option to add images to a folder and have them added
to the screensaver "cycle" if the above cannot be implemented.
Pictures of dead authors get boring after a while.

3) I'd like the ability to add fonts to the kindle. I could see a
directory being added to which a user can just drag/drop truetype
fonts or another standard.

4) I'd like the ability to force a poorly-formatted book (or even a
well-formatted book) to have a standard formatting. For example, I
recently bought (and returned) a book that was justified for half the
book, but the second half was all tabbed. This made everything very
ugly, and it was disconcerting when I reached that portion of the
book. I also hate books that don't have a space between paragraphs- I
prefer justified text with a space between each paragraph. This
should be an option. I can understand reflow problems with allowing
the reader to define what books should look like, but could that be
done during indexing, perhaps, before the reader opens the book.

5) I'm sure you get this a lot, but I despise the topaz format and
immediately return any book I buy that is in that format.

6) It would be nice (but certainly not necessary) to be able to add
the web browser or links to the home screen.
