Not exactly. The "gnome" bin:meta:package  for Debian wheezy is
full of 3rd party deps, but later they got removed again. Haven't
looked at KDE or other so far.

Can you be more explicit about this, i.e. giving explicit bin:package
names? THANKS! I am actually not sure if I get this statement at all.
(It is possible to run Qt apps on MATE desktops, but of course, I
would not include Qt-based desktop components into a GTK desktop).
Confused a bit here, please be more explainative on this. Thanks!
