Well, if abstractions/lightdm_chromium-browser is still there, people
may presume that they should be able to use it, rather than it being a
broken file that they should ignore. Because why would Debian leave in
something non-functional that's not supposed to be used?

We've addressed the immediate problem (the parse error), but have not,
in effect, removed the lightdm guest-session business completely---
which [is what I thought] was the plan.

It's like saying that you've "uninstalled Emacs" by deleting
/usr/bin/emacs. "Hey, what's the problem, you can't run the program
anymore! It's not there!" Well, yes, but there's other stuff
associated with it that's still there, that should have been removed
at the same time.
