you're missing part of the story here. This is why I said I would elaborate.

Benedikt has told us before that he would like to keep 'thunar' as his 
own project and go anywhere where he wants to take it, and at his own 
pace. He might even take it outside of Xfce completely, and as such we 
have a dilemma.

Basically we can pick up thunar's design sketches as they stand right 
now and fork() the project to start working on it as we see fit. The 
request from Benedikt to put this new product under a different name 
still stands.

As such we have two options:

(1) Follow Benedikt where he is going and be confident that his 'thunar' 
will integrate or operate well within Xfce4

(2) Fork thunar into something new and make sure ourselves that ... see 

As wel currently lack C programmers with a good perspective on design 
this is a really big problem. Definately a dilemma I would say.

so... There it is.
