@base-x is a pretty broken comps group, to be honest.  I'd really like
to see a split between "the minimal stuff needed to make X work" and "a
bunch of desktop-agnostic stuff".

Actually, that's not true.  Someone should own the
choose-your-own-adventure desktop experience and come up with a decent
way of selecting devilspie/fluxbox/twm/ratpoison etc.  And I'm going to
bet that that won't be comps groups, which means they shouldn't be
listed in comps at all.
