I appreciate your work and your motivation. Thanks a lot.
But why do you release something that is not fully translated?
Some distributions have packaged it already. It doesn't look good when
there is something like Denglish or other mixture of two languages.
Honestly, the feature with the enhanced tooltip looks very nice but
hits the limits what Xfce's called "lightweight".
What do others think?
