I was trying to propose that Guix uses XFCE as the base for GNOME
(maybe: XFCE/GNOME) for the long term, assuming that non-systemd GNOME
installs won't be able to use gdm and some core functionality anymore in
the future.
I was not proposing to restrict Guix to KDE,XFCE,XFCE/GNOME, or not
trying to package GNOME as it is.

At the moment it should be doable to package GNOME as it is.  I was only
referring to the future.  Just trying to plan, at least a little :)

Best regards.
