Bug Description

Currently, the gnome-session binary is shipped in "gnome-session-bin package", but it's registered in the alternatives system (as /usr/bin/x-session-manager) by a completely unrelated "gnome-session" package which ships configuration files for Ubuntu, Ubuntu-2d and other sessions. Therefore, derivatives using gnome-session but not Unity and not shipping the package with configuration files don't get gnome-session binary registered in the alternatives system.
