that's okay, this is IMO actually on-topic. One of the design goals of
xfce is to keep it componentized, so you can choose not to run certain
components on places where you don't want them. In Xfce's case, you
could run the panel, but not the session manager. perhaps also without
xfdesktop (replaced by rox/idesk)... etc.
