FWIW, i agree 100%. I honestly can't see XFCE4 getting serious acceptance
if there is no session management, especially when XFCE3 has/had it.
Removing functionality from a product, be it software or oven mitts, is
usually the fastest way to loose your customer base.
One of the (many) reasons why i ditched KDE when they released their 2.x
series is because they so drastically changed everything that it was no
longer the same environment that i actually found useful. THere was so
much that was different from 1.x and so much that was new that it wasn't
the same product any longer, and i wasn't the target audience, IMO.
