I've been using Clearlooks for the last few months too and I rather like 
it. OTOH, I do think that xfce engine is pretty neat and provides 
certain functionality.

Also, having our own gtk engine means that we have a pretty good idea 
what a default install of xfce is going to look like. If clearlooks is 
assured to be installed with gtk then we can use it instead.


if (clearlooks available by default) {
	if (maintainer available) {
	} else {
} else {


-- b

PS: *Sigh*, that's the nearest I've gotten to writing code in months. :-(
