Great! I'll try and shape things up until the end of this week. I'll
reinstate a block for all udebs after tonight's britney run, and I'll
be running some more checks before a possible upload in a few days.

The highlighted part above was meant to be an ACK for the change, but I
agree I should have made that more explicit. To recap quickly: my main
objection last time was the lack of prior notice (visible to outside the
huge yet limited DC'15 crowd); now that it's been announced on lists and
discussed a bit, and that the feedback loop has been quiet for a while,
I'm fine with moving things ahead (even if I suspect we might hear some
more about users once the change has actually happened ;)).

I've already checked with Steve that the plan looks like this:
 - getting netinst on i386/amd64 would still install Gnome;
 - but CD#1 would be specifically marked as CD1-xfce in some manner
   (through the filename), and would default to Xfce instead.
