Good! One more thing. I just downloaded the "deb" packaging, and note 
that the ONLY desktop install there is for debian, no freedesktop. :/

Folks downloading the "deb" packaging would therefore not see this 
option.  Debian (and its derivatives) support a variety of graphical 
environments, and the freedesktop option would probably work fine, but 
they won't be using RPM. Our next step might be to investigate the 
creation scripts and see if we can build a "deb" package for the 
freedesktop option for installation testing. I would love to have my 
Linux Mint buddy test this out. :)
