First thing to remember: Xfce is not just a window manager, its a desktop
environment. IIRC it was ment to be a free replacement for CDE, which in
turn is a very usable and very complete working environment, so I guess
it won't hurd Xfce, if its more "complete". Xfce should include anything
possible, as long as it'll a) improve the working experience, b) doesn't
slow down things unnecessary and c) Oliver likes it :-).


Those who do not understand Unix are condemned to reinvent it, poorly.
