We would need upstream acceptance of TDE in affected projects for this to
be viable.  If this is not done, then users will notice a degraded
experience when basic programs such as Synaptic cease to function
properly.  These users would then note that such applications work
properly under KDE, and logically conclude that TDE is broken.

I think this is a lesser of two evils problem, and would like to keep the
dual test in at this point.

Thoughts from others knowledgeable in this area?
