	When using the session manager, to get rid of the taskbar (or any other
thing the session manager loads) you can simply kill it from inside
Xfce, then exit and check the box "save session" before clicking "ok" in
the exit dialog. The next time you run Xfce the session manager will
remember which apps you have loaded last time.

	The session manager doesn't use any xinitrc AFAIK, it seems that stores
its config in .xfce4/sessions (in a binary format).
