nah, let them feel the pain of running CVS code :) It's not a big deal I
think (I hope :).

It is nice to use that script as an example.xinitrc file perhaps.

I think it also would be nice to add a few of the more usefull scripts
of xfce3 to xfce-utils, e.g. xfterm, xflock, xfmountdev, xfhelp, the
last one only useful when we finally get to writing any user docs of
course :)

IRC channel: #xfce on
