Covers and screensavers

Does anyone else wish that their screensaver was the cover of the book that's currently open? It seems like it should be fairly easy (for amazon, at any rate) to do. And a great way to actually use the cover photos that are in the books.

I would prefer that the "screensaver" (which it obviously is not because it never changes) contiues to show the last page I've read, maybe with the addition of a small footnote, at bottom of the screen, that it has gone to "battery saving mode" and that I have to "slide to unlock" it.

I'd love to see both as a user selectable option. In this day and age I don't understand NOT allowing people to do customizations like wallpapers, and fonts. I too would love for the kindle to show the cover of the book instead of a bunch of dead authors.
