           Summary: Centralized site wide config needed
           Product: Xfce
           Version: 4.2.2
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Medium
         Component: xfce-mcs-plugins
        AssignedTo: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
        ReportedBy: svein-xfce at halvorsen.cc

Xfce4 is far less viable to be used by sysadmins unless a system for centralized site wide 
configuration are deployed. We need a system where a sysadmin as a user can set up his xfce 
environment, and then copy his .config/xfce4 directory to some centralized place.

All xfce apps should set its setting accoriding to the following precedence:

1. user config
2. system config
3. hardcoded defaults

The apps should load the settings in reverse order, and override with settings of higher precedence 
where applicable. 

Possibly the kiosk mode should fit in here somewhere, giving the sysadmin the opportunity to select 
which settings could be overridden by the user and which could not.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. The lack of the proposed feature is by design. No steps necessary

Actual Results:  
Centralized settings are not loaded

Expected Results:  
Centralized should be loaded
