The system's screen saver app registered .saver as a document type, so
that behavior happens automagically. You don't need to do anything
besides create a normal .saver plugin from the standard template.
If you want similar behavior from a screen saver app of your own, you
can do the same thing - register a filename extension for your
plugins, and copy them to your ~/Library/Application Support folder
when the user tries to open them.
