As someone else mentioned, you can use an xinitrc script addition for
that. I'm not adding app-specific hacks to xfce4-session for something
There's currently no standard for an "autostop" type thing to complement
autostart. This might be useful, but personally I'm not interested in
leading an effort to create a standard. If one pops up and appears to
gain cross-desktop support, I'd be happy to implement it, of course.
P.S. FYI, it's "Xfce" or "xfce"; the "XFce" capitalization is from the
old XForms days.
