well, if enough people send in their default configuration, youll
start to see trends, and then can figure out some of the basic
features many xfce users will have.

defiantly, 4.2 had a very goo default setup, and thats what everyone
thinks when we say xfce 4.x. maybe some radical changes to 5.x, but
4.x should stay familiar. although maybe if you could provide preset
configurations like in kde, one to look like kde, one for gnome, one
for osx, one for windows, but default to xfce-4.4. how easy would that
be to do before the release?
