Bug#680519: please do depend on gdm3 for lxde-desktop

From my POV, I think the change from xdm to gdm3 seems quite a good
change and inline with the policy we had up to now: leave such
decision to those people who manage the different desktop

So, I'd be OK with the change. Any objection from other people who
happen to wake up for tasksel bug reports?
