That is already available.

BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Advanced->Preferences->for both the Processor Usage and Network Usage options you can set what day of the week to override the other preferences with. The Processor override only works when you tell BOINC through those preferences to only do work when the computer is idle (not in use).

A static screen saver isn't saving much of the screen. It will burn in, even though some people here tell differently. It's in the eye of the beholder, I think.

However, you can emulate the old Seti screen saver by following the steps on this page.

Not true. The only thing you have to select is "Run based on preferences" in the "Activity" menu of BOINC manager's advanced view. At least so it works for me with BOINC 5.10.45.

So what does it override then? It's the "day-of-the-week-override". if it doesn't override any of the above settings, then why the name?

I must say I never tested the use of those options. But as far as I know, you specify here that you want work only done when the CPU is idle and the day is Sunday and then only between the hours of so late and so late. As else when you don't specify to only do work when the CPU is idle, work will always be done. Including on Sunday.

That's the local preferences in 5.10.45 (top of "processor usage" tab):
Computing allowed
While computer is on batteries
While computer is in use
Only after computer has been idle for nn minutes		<-- this is independent

Every day between hours of xx and yy (no restriction if equal)	<-- this gets overriden
Day-of-week override...					<-- by this
