I missed the proposal to do this and resulting discussion on tech-pkg

I think it's very useful to have something that gives a working desktop
without pulling in every single program.  meta-pkgs/gnome is huge, and
has many things that most people wouldn't want installed.  So I think we
should have some sort of gnome-mimimal that has panel, panel applets,
terminal, gnome-session, etc. but not tons of "applications".  What it's
called is not that important.
