There is no 'lxde' section, so no way of identifying which packages
belong to lxde. I'm expecting to add the packages, but those will end
up in 'main'.

(However, in time, xfce could be moved to an xfce component, leaving
the door open for lxde to be the default in 'main'.)

I won't be adding packages from private repositories to the Grip
repository at www.emdebian.org/grip - everything comes from Debian or
not at all. The NEW queue is not as much of a delay as it has been in
the past and I don't expect to be adding those packages until I've got
other issues resolved within Grip anyway.
