Will official support for custom screen-savers ever come?

Hey everyone. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts were on this subject. Many of the current ereaders (sony ereaders, nook, etc...) allow custom screen-savers. I know this is probably a subject that's been covered before, and I understand there's the hack to get around it, but I was wondering what everyone thought the probability was of Amazon officially supporting this within the next 3-6 months. Do people here think it's likely or unlikely? I know they're working on a folder/tagging solution, maybe they're going to incorporate this too?

Doesn't really seem terribly important to me. YMMV.

Maybe. Definitely before the close of 2010. They will do so to stay ahead of B&N's Nook. Amazon will also release a touchscreen version with a slightly larger screen than the current K2. I, Nostrasharpus, have thus written, and thus it will be done.

They used to allow it and I really hope they start allowing it again. If you have a custom skin, it is especially nice to have the custom screen saver that goes with it. The big skull on my Kindle 1 was oh so cool (at least I thought I so).
