The failsafe option is a good solution for when things
actually go wrong with ~/.gnome/session (file
corruption, permissions screw-up, whatnot). However,
the problem being addressed is how to keep the user's
own ignorance of the GUI from getting to the point
where he or she seems stuck. Such a user might not
know how to trigger the failsafe option, even if there
is a easy GUI way of accessing it. Better to keep the
user from screwing up in the first place. Thristian's
more fine-grained scheme minimizes the number of core
things that can't be removed, so even advanced users
should be happy and may not even notice what isn't
