I do not understand this. There are at least two times during a Wheezy 
install where one can choose: 
1. What desktop environment to install, XFCE, LXDE,KDE, 
From  the first boot menu choose 'advanced options>alternate desktop 
environments>
2. boot menu > Expert install , you walk through all the choices, more 
time consuming.
3. Or if you happen to hit the 'Install' or ' Graphical Install' option 
from the boot menu you can always unselect the 'desktop environment' 
during the 'Tasksel' phase.

I have been using TDE 3.5.14, nightly builds, on Wheezy works well here.
I always do a base/standard Wheezy net install, add Trinity sources, 
install TDE.
