An user can't change the priority. A sysadmin can do that, but each time
a new package is installed this priority need to be changed by hand.

The maximum priority is 50 See policy 12.8.4

Start with 20. If menu Debian are supported add 20 and if the window
manager can be restarted without killing X add 10

Now if you want to add a new policy statement for GNOME window manager,
do it, but this will take a long time (if nobody else disagree).
