The main difference is that bodhi linux probably has a separated repos + 
ubuntu repos. lubuntu hasn't its own repo, so we can't do anything but 
make a list of the approved apps or put a filter for GNOME/KDE related 
packages (just an ads, something like "This program is integrated with 
the GNOME/KDE desktop environment, so it could require heavy dependencies"
