Yeah... they keep changing the group names, for no good reason AFAIK. For
example, between 5 and 6, they changed KDE from "KDE (K Desktop
Environment)" to  "KDE Desktop". Note that we groupinstall "X Window
System" and Desktop, and *then* the KDE; I'd assume gnome was the same.

       mark, confirmed gnome disliker (and hater of gnome 3)
