Is it as simple as appending something like "desktop=xfce" to the boot
command line?

Actually yes, that should work;  the install media for GNU/Hurd and
kFreeBSD are doing exactly this.

So I tried it. And it works.

Here's my proposed patch -- Add the following to /install/boot.msg :

The following desktop environments are available: gnome, kde, xfce and lxde. The default is gnome. If you prefer a different one, append "desktop=<your choice>". E.g. to do an expert install with the xfce desktop environment, type
"expert desktop=xfce" at the "boot:" prompt.

Would it help if I submit a wishlist bug report?
