Bug#771587: caja hardly startable outside MATE desktop environment

Package: caja
Severity: important

When launching caja via cmdline in a terminal or via the application menu outside a MATE desktop environment, caja will always launch the MATE desktop (background + icons + context menu).

My expectation is to only launch the file browser window of caja.

Suggestion: Provide caja and caja-deskop in /usr/bin and move caja to ${libexec} dir. The files caja and caja-desktop are simple wrappers for caja using the correct options with caja to lauch the file browser and/or the desktop manager.

How to reproduce: use i3, xmonad, or awesome as desktop shell and run caja from a terminal.
