This sounds like a good short-term fix.  In the long run, would it
be reasonable to create a new alternative named gnome-window-manager?
This would be more maintainable as new NETWM-aware window managers
become available.

We could also have a Provides: netwm-window-manager (or something), and
add a Recommends or Suggests to gnome-session.
