I admit I did not follow the thread, so my point shouldn't be too much
tainted. On the other hand, I don't have all of the required background
to give a fully enlightnened opinion on the topic.

Anyway, I think that if the modules are related to the GUI, they should
go to libxfcegui4. I wouldn't mind seeing the combo module in
libxfcegui4. The dependency on libdbh should be optional, and the module
not built if dbh is not present.

I don't feel too comfortable with the xfheader package.

Let's keep on the technical ground, improve communication and avoid
useless flames between us.
