After the installation of all the available desktop environments,
in the Enlightenment desktop environment there are multiple programs from some of the other desktop environments to choose from, not just the Enlightenment default ones.

Does this happen when only Enlightenment is installed? If not, I do not think this is necessarily a bug.
It makes sense that englightenment would detect all programs installed. Since other desktop environments install programs, enlightenment should detect the other programs. If gnome is installed alongside enlightenment, I would expect both environments to detect the same packages, including those installed by gnome and those installed by enlightenment.
I suppose if it is nevertheless an undesirable behavior, we could try to allow a configuration to specify global profiles, so the desktop environments can be isolated from each other. Can anyone poke holes (bonus points if security-related) in this proposed solution?
