Since a11y looks like a compelling argument to go back to GNOME by
default, I think we must address that point one way or another if we
want it to happen.
I think there are several ways to do that:
* tweak the debian-cd scripts to build GNOME images for Linux
architectures and Xfce or MATE images for !linux (I can’t tell
how hard it is)
* make stripped-down gnome-core/gnome metapackages for !linux,
relying on lightdm and gnome-flashback (that I can do)
* hackishly make gnome-core/gnome metapackages depend directly on
Xfce or MATE for !linux instead of GNOME (same)
Overall, a gnome-flashback solution would probably be more featureful,
but it is clearly less maintained than e.g. Xfce.
