Yes, I was able to find them, and test them... VERY impressive, but
pretty much useless (the dragging and resizing functions) unless your
card supports RENDER accel (which nVidia cards do! I don't know about
other DRI drivers, though)

Same, I was able to write the transparency value for both the panel
and the iconbox to ~/.config/xfce4/transparency

Hmm... So basically I should edit the theme I'm using to
increase/decrease shadow radius? How do I go about that?
