Here's my thoughts on the status of XFce 4. Is this anywhere near to
other people's impression?

* libraries: ready

* settings manager and plugins: ready

* xfwm4: ready

* panel: ready

* xfdesktop: I think releasable, unless we _really_ want a menu editor

* xffm: steam-rolling ahead, not entirely finished yet (?)

* xfce-utils: ready, apart from finishing the credits page in

* xfprint: haven't really tried it yet. Can't break much I guess,
  so should be fine if it works as planned.

* xfibx: not even in CVS, but seems simple enough and doesn't seem to
  break stuff. Would be nice to have, I think.

* documentation: Not finished by far. I think I would prefer to put all
  documentation in a separate module. My feeling is that this will make
  it easier to explain  how the desktop environment as a whole is 
  supposed to work. 

Did I miss anything?
