Although I'd never used the desktop icons rather often for navigating
through my tasks having this feature implented might bring a lot of
former xfce3 users to xfce4. And as Olivier said, it isn't far away from
being implented ...

freeze ;-p

Yes, indeed, although I'm trying to keep track of the changes made to the
already translated parts via the list or the Changelogs its impossible to
catch all of them, so a feature freeze would make translating a lot easier
