[Pkg-xfce-devel] not able to install xfce parallely to GNOME desktop

Hi all,
      I want/ed to install task-xfce-desktop parallely to the existing
default GNOME setup. I am on SID/unstable .

I looked at xfce-task-desktop before starting on the install. It said :-

$ aptitude show task-xfce-desktop
Package: task-xfce-desktop
State: not installed
Version: 3.05
Priority: optional
Section: tasks
Maintainer: Debian Install System Team <debian-boot at lists.debian.org>
Uncompressed Size: 20.5 k
Depends: tasksel, task-desktop, xfce4, xdm
Recommends: xfce4-goodies, mousepad, orage, xfce4-mixer, xfprint4,
xfce4-terminal, libreoffice-gtk, dbus-x11,
            xsane, vlc, quodlibet, epdfview, tango-icon-theme,
xfce4-power-manager, wicd
Description: XFCE desktop environment
 This task package is used to install the Debian desktop, featuring
the XFCE desktop environment, and with other packages that Debian
users expect to have available on the desktop.

The thing I noticed here is there is/are no conflicts fields as in
conflict to GNOME or something so started with installing the
recommends first so when I'm finally at task-xfce-desktop it should be

Now, when I'm finally trying to install the task-xfce-desktop I get
the following conflicts :-

$ sudo aptitude install quodlibet
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs{a} python-gpod{ab} quodlibet
0 packages upgraded, 3 newly installed, 0 to remove and 33 not upgraded.
Need to get 854 kB of archives. After unpacking 2,081 kB will be used.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  gnome-desktop-environment: Conflicts: gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs but
0.10.35-1 is to be installed.
  python-gpod: Depends: python-mutagen-gobject which is a virtual package.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

     Keep the following packages at their current version:
1)     gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs [Not Installed]
2)     python-gpod [Not Installed]

     Leave the following dependencies unresolved:
3)     quodlibet recommends gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs
4)     quodlibet recommends python-gpod

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] q
Abandoning all efforts to resolve these dependencies.

Am I missing something ?
