Yes, we should try to keep changes as minimal as possible.  No, we
shouldn't just copy them, if it would fit the needs of our users better,
if we do some small changes.

And why shouldn't I be allowed to have both packages installed?  We run
here a computer pool for many different students, some use xfce4, some
use GNUstep.  Why should I disallow anyone of them, to don't use the
terminal of their prefered desktop environment?
