Since 'Breaks' is uninformatively unavailable, what option do we have?

Relevant points here:

1) Can't touch user's $HOME in any maintainer scripts
2) gtk2-engines-gtk-qt is known to break Xfce once ~/.gtkrc-2.0 exists

#2 is the critical point. Of course we can leave gtk2-engines-gtk-qt
well enough alone on _any_ invocation of installing xubuntu-desktop,
but our hands are tied as to how to eradicate ~/.gtkrc-2.0 .
