I say we drop every WM & DE except GNOME, because that will simplify
the distro, and lead to *much* fewer bugs!!!

Obviously, what I just wrote is nonsense, and should never happen.
Because FLOSS *is* about choice.

However... it is perfectly reasonable for a distro to say, "We can
not be all things to all people, so some limits have to be set, and
some users/DDs will be disappointed."
