Reassigning to comps.  

Than -- why is the gui of switchdesk split out anyway?  I can't really
think of a convincing reason where switchdesk would be useful when you
_don't_ have a gui installed.

With new switchdesk-4.0.x, you can now run it in either graphic mode
or text mode.

The switchdesk package is the main package, which only supports text
mode and -gui the graphic mode.

We should add switchdesk and switchdesk-gui in comps!

To run in graphical mode, the "switchdesk-gui" package needs to be

Also the menu item on the Sytem Preferences menu is installed only
when the "switchdesk-gui" package is installed.

Thanks for the quick follow-up.

I thought switchdesk was supposed to be dead, and the switching handled through
gdm instead? I don't know the details of this, but maybe jrb does.
