Those were only experimental packages.

You should talk about them on debian-gtk-gnome, not here.

Note the ICE-Authorisation has nothing to do with icewm at all :)

gnome-session launches a default set of stuff, which, IIRC, includes
icewm.  Once you've 'got it going' it will run whatever you had open when
you quit it - i.e. your own WM.
