Not trying to speak for the other person, but I have wondered since F15 
Alpha came out about a /home directory that has been re-used for several 
versions of fedora.  At one point, I had to backup /home and start over 
with a new /home in F15 to get the gnome shell to come up and then 
re-add selectively from the backup to get some of the "old" gnome 
.desktop files back into use.

All that said, I think I also used the words "old cruft" in a msg on the 
desktop list where I wondered about the affects of a reused /home 
directory that also contained xfce and kde sessions.  I am still 
wondering how well gnome 3 gets along with others.  For the most part it 
seems to like its cousins.
