I'll 2nd that one.  Personally i don't like taskbars.  If i did, i'd be
using KDE or Gnome right now, and not XFCE3/4.

I don't care much either way on this.

The ability to right click on a window bar, and have it (un)shade, just as
it did in XFCE3.  This might sound minor to some folks, but this is huge
in my book.  It was a key feature in XFCE3, and removing it in XFCE4
really detracts from usabilitiy in my opinion.  Yes, i know about the
little menu that appears in XFCE4 when you right click, but its not the
same.  I want the same one-click method.  Anything more is cumbersome.
