Oh, thanks for the clarification. That was really widely
misconceived/mis-reported by the media.

Also, thanks for the links to the different threads/posts. As you can
see from my direct (and sadly uninformed) approach of directly posting
to this list, we don't have any experience with Debian yet. I was aware
you had just picked a theme for Wheezy, which was why I thought asking
early enough for the next release might have its merits.

Of course I'm a little sad that Xfce isn't the default desktop after
all, but we'll see whether we can still submit something for Wheezy+1.

All the best,
