You will never get xfce via an indirect 4-step dependency chain,
but systemd comes in due to being the first alternative
with lots of packages.

Look at the dependency tree and then you will understand why a
systemd-must-die (or whatever the name is) package makes sense,
but a xfce-must-die not.

Not sooo hard to understand.
