Bug Description

I'd like to rename the "GNOME Classic" session to "GNOME Fallback" in the login screen session chooser and the "GNOME" session to "GNOME Shell". My reasoning is that upstream is using the GNOME Fallback name to describe the gnome-panel session and it's good to align with what they're doing, for bugreports and such.

I'd like to rename GNOME to GNOME Shell to go along with Ubuntu's position that Unity is still GNOME, just a different shell.

I believe Edubuntu ships the GNOME Fallback session in addition to Unity.

Where are those strings coming from? gnome-session session files? It seems a bit late to break translations...

I decided it's not worth breaking translations for this but I intend to make this change early in the P cycle.
