Note that I will propose to the GNOME team to reorganize the GNOME
categories to gnome-platform/, gnome-desktop/, gnome-dev/,
gnome-bindings/ or similar setup once we have atomic commits to the
portage tree (a la git) to not disrupt anything from all the moves.
But I think with just 14 packages an lxde-base makes the most sense
indeed, with upstream probably not having them categorized themselves
like GNOME has.
