Something along the lines of thinking of / renaming themselves 'XFree86
KDE' or 'XFree86 Gnome'.  Or if these desktop environments fancy
abstracting themselves out from the bounds of XFree86, 'OpenSource
{KDE,Gnome}'.  I guess what I'm getting at is a conscious effort to
integrate software that uses other widget sets into their desktop
environments and in a way that is business like with sound
administration services that also doesn't break the aesthetics of the

GSO ;)
