it seems to have few gnome deps, only gconf, directly calling yelp and a few
hardcoded app-names.

2) hack gnome-app-install in a way that will show just xubuntu and xfce
> pkges.

it allows installation of gnome/kde and 3rd party apps regardless of what
desktop one uses and
that should not be altered IMHO.Especially since there are not mnay xfce
related apps I know of that
will not be installed anyway by default.

> what would u expect from such app ?

mvo said that it is part of the 3rd party packages spec,whic means that
after dapper people can publish dapper
compatible debs on their sites and by updating the package list via
dapper-updates, users can get those packages.
