gnome-terminal requires ORBit, libgnomevfs, libbonobo, libgnomeui,
libgnomecanvas, libgnome-2, and libglade. konsole requires a bunch of
kde libs (just as many, maybe more), that an xfce user is even less
likely to have/want on their system. i agree that xterm and rxvt are
probably "good enough" (hell, i use Eterm), but a nicer, xfce-branded
terminal that doesn't have any large dependencies would be nice.
