Yes, I am aware, I already have mate running on a few machines. At
some stage I had problems with it with respect to using different
keyboard layouts, so I reverted to gnome2 for a while; later I found
the problem.

I guess we have enough desktop environments even without gnome,
although it would be nice if cinnamon gets into pkgsrc proper; as I
mentioned above, it builds for me, but doesn't run very well - or at
all in a virtual machine.
