oh dear, my little trolleybus keeps getting mangled out there (grimace)!

i don't have any personal use for desktop icons in the way i work,
but can see that others may find them v helpful for organising files/apps.
proposals to add them to the regular Xfce desktop have met strong resistance
as something too much like M$ , but an Xfce pinboard wb a good idea
& rather than putting in the effort & having everyone wait for 4.4 ,
it mb better to look seriously at Apwal as an adequate solution.
