Fair enough; meta-pkgs/mate works, as well as xfce4 and kde, so the
choice is there; I was under the impression that gnome3 was somehow
dependent on systemd and getting it run elsewhere would be a
challenge. Pity for some of the old classic games, though they should
probably continue to work on the existing installations - until some
shared library gets some version bump...
