That statement was mine ;-) It seemed like something that should be 
discussed to me.

The issue I raised is that xfrun depends optionally on xfce4-modules. 
For that purpose it used to have a private copy of a xfce4-modules 
header files. Edscott changed that, effectively making xfce-utils depend 
on xfce4-modules during build.

xfheaders is not a general headers package, but only for xfce4-modules. 
Therefore it should be called xfce4-modules-headers, if anything. I 
still don't like the idea of extra modules for this though.
