I think the extra ISO would be a great idea. at least for testing. (yes it 
has taken me since may 11 to figure this out) having a second seed will 
help finding which packages (like -settings) need to be split or forked 
for this to work. I think maybe something other than -next for a name 
because -next makes whatever is there sound like the cut in stone 
direction we are taking rather than a trial direction.

My thinking is that when we have plasma working well it will either be 
default or an install choice and we can then use the trial iso to work on 
MATE and then gnome.

It would be nice if all DE things could be in one package per DE. I think 
we already try to do this, but I am not sure.
