Get the defaults changed upstream.

In this thread there are just a few -1 posts and the rest seems to be
+1 so the solid base is building up here.

That's called a vocal minority, and is the reason why we don't have
votes on mailing-lists for this sort of thing.

And if you think it's a matter of patching the package, note that for
any GNOME packages you'll find in Fedora for which there are patches,
you'll find those same patches/functionality being upstreamed.

I think there is really a better approach to this, but it doesn't mesh all that well with RPM capabilities. That is, for every package or package group where there is more than one commonly desired configuration, there should be multiple configuration packages where the last one installed wins, conceptually similar to the way the caching-nameserver package is just a different configuration for bind.

Then you could have a gnome-cluttered package for people who like leaving trails of open windows splattered all over the screen and gnome-clean for people who don't.
