Yeah :) I don't know if you have included the Thunar file manager in
this, but you could.

You could also ask xubuntu people. They are trying to achieve the same
goal (a light distribution, but quite complete). They packages some
packages without gnome dependencies (gdm for example, iirc), so it could
be helpful for your task.

Do you plan to add a music/media player ? a slow machine can't play HD
videos but can play music so....
