XFCE really needs to provide the org.gnome.settingsdaemon.mediakeys service so
that when the XF86Audio* keys are pressed the appropriate DBus signals are
emitted.  An example implementation of this in python can be found here:


It currently lacks the ability to listen for the key events and instead relies
on keybindings being made that call that same program with arguments.  A more
complete solution would include binding to the X11 keys so that an external
binding was not necessary.
