This is why I suggested that this type of 'tweak' goes into a separate 
settings manager plugin. If that is technically possible (for another 
3rd-party to modify xfwm4 behaviour somehow) it would provide other 
people the ability to add fluff and wrap that in a separate package.

It would benefit the modularity and cleanness of xfce IMO, and it would 
allow 3rd parties to provide functionality which some of us might 
appreciate, without touching (too much) on the core xfce libs/xfwm4.

Olivier, do you think this would be a viable alternative?
