I just got my head kicked in offlist by someone who tried this.... so I 
want to elaborate a bit : while garnome builds do work fine, they work 
fine only for the stuff that you build with it, pretty much everything 
else you expect to work with some level of integration into the gnome 
environment will break, almost certainly. So dont expect for the entire 
'distro' to stay 'together' post gnome-update.
