Well, I use Xfce, but I understand your approach (as someone used to
write just an .xsession file for startup etc.).  I have to admit some
panel stuff is pretty ok (like battery applet, network applet for
switching wifi and vpn's etc.).  Terminals with tabs (Xfce terminal)
are nice to have too: my desktop is mainly 4-8 terminals with each
4+ tabs and a browser ;-).

I was happy with the release of GNOME 3 afterwards, because it forced
me to leave GNOME completely and switch to something better, Xfce :-).
