Well, this is a bit of a problem with the fact that the xfce panel 
configuration is hand-crafted, rather then autogenerated. I'm not sure 
we can really solve this. Suggestions are welcome. Traditionally Xfce 
has always given a default configuration with some common programs.

The only way to solve this is by putting nothing in the panel except 
what is installed by Xfce. Even that is a problem, since not all of Xfce 
may be installed.

I'm not sure about the .desktop files. The menu spec describes a way to 
do this (using .desktop files with a Hidden=true entry), but I don't 
know if we support that.

Good to hear. Thanks.
