The plugin removal seems to have to do with the .desktop filename being
different. Changing it back to xkb-plugin.desktop allows it to survive the
upgrade and panel restart. Settings are still not retained (as expected).

It seems like it should be possible to provide a smooth upgrade path; any
plans to do so or would that be asking for too much? I am holding off
updating xfce4-xkb-plugin in Arch Linux in hopes of not having to require
reconfiguration from users after this update.
