Jurjen i would be happy to help you here .. the point here is that
gnome-app-install doesn't install just gnome apps ... but kde and more

it uses desktop files .. so there are two possibilities:

1) clean of gnome deps gnome-app-install
2) hack gnome-app-install in a way that will show just xubuntu and xfce pkges.

if we want to point users to xfce pkges we should implement the 2) ..
if we want an app-install that could work even in xubuntu we should
just ask to mvo if he's fine with cleaning it of the gnome deps ...

what would u expect from such app ?
