The current method  
looks like it will leave the ubuntu-kernel, as well as linux-restricted-modules 
and may leave some artwork around also. Of course some ubuntu artwork is 
usually  hiding in a gnewsense install anyway so not a big deal IMO. You won't 
be running the ubuntu kernel but it is likely a choice on the grub menu screen 
since it is still installed. 

Installing gnewsense-desktop means that if you have uninstalled some stuff like 
openoffice or other package that is part of the desktop meta package then that 
stuff will be reinstalled. Of course I doubt most people uninstall stuff so 
likely not a issue.

You can take a look at the scripts I use to convert my dapper installs to 
Use at your own risk of course! :)
