There are already group installs for XFCE or Gnome or KDE ... one only
needs to pick one of those, along with the "X Windows" group.

What I see as the fix for this is to have all the applicable packages
"Provides:  WindowManger" (the applicable package from xcfe, kde, and
gnome, for example).  But this would need to be done upstream.

Since we already have groups for each of the big 3 "Desktops" ... I
don't see the need to do anything else.
