Xfce runs a script called
xflock4 to lock the screen, to change the default behavior just foist another script on Xfce!

/usr/bin (here is the original
xflock4 located). The rest should be clear!
E.g. to use xtrlock instead of Xscreensaver you just have to link to the binary:
On a multiuser system you may allow each user to use it’s own locking-solution. So just write a script that checks if
$HOME/.screenlock is executable and runs it or falls back to a default screensaver:
Save it executable as
/usr/local/bin/xflock4 - done…
