I've made a first pass over comps and the spin kickstart files. Some
things I've made:

- replace gnome-themes by gnome-themes-standard, as you've noticed
- don't include librsvg3 (which had only a very brief existence)
- update our exclusions to exclude libreoffice instead of ooo

After these changes, I end up with a 730M desktop spin, even without

As far as further necessary changes, I see at least the following:

- finish packaging cantarell fonts, and include them

- smoke out perl dependencies again 

- look at other ways to save some space
