Nah. Don't repeat the RedHat mental fart they did in their last release.
GNOME and KDE are two different environments and they should be kept
separated in a visible way, IMHO. I expect Debian Desktop to deliver the
same set of modifications to both environments, but I see no point in making
a mess out of the newbie KDE user's desktop or the newbie GNOME user's
desktop. I think it's healthier to keep those two separate.

Much ado about nothing, IMHO :)
