I'm not sure what the best version of Trinity would be for Wheezy - I suspect 
Slavek's patched version of 3.5.13, at least until 3.5.14 is released.

To avoid getting Gnome on a fresh Debian install don't chose one of 
the 'default' systems types i.e. desktop, server, developer system etc. but 
instead choose to select which packages you want to install manually.  This 
will leave you with a minimal bootable Debian system from which you can use 
dselect to chose and install the specific packages you want.  If you chose 
any Gnome or GTK packages you'll end up with some Gnome components, as 
dselect sorts out and installs the dependencies, but not the full Gnome
