I dunno . . . given the Xfce (the OTHER lightweight DE) team's decision
to start getting rid of the xfce-* categories, near as I can tell, is
this really consistent with what the rest of the desktop teams are

Aside from these recent actions, lxde categories seem like a good idea,
same as for all our other desktops.
