OK, talk on the Fedora users list about this thing called Wayland had me 
doing some research.  Like is this something that will be of concern at 
some point with Xfce???

Well a bit of an eye-opener.  Bye, bye, miss American X11.... (Recently 
saw some fun utubes on McLean :) ).

So where is Xfce wrt Wayland, that I have run now since 2017 or '18?

I found one discussion back in Mar '21 about plans for Xfce 4.18 and 
supporting Wayland.  Fedora35 uses 4.16.

Does anyone know current efforts on Wayland (that seems to be where 
Linux desktops have to go or die) for Xfce?

One cute comment I saw that Xfce will have to be called 'E', as it is no 
longer 'fc' and once it jettisons X, well...
