My understanding is that xfdesktop is going to be pretty much exactly 
the same as it is in 4.2.

It seems likely that xfdesktop will get superceded by a file manager 
based desktop manager in future releases, so Brian is naturally not very 
interested in putting in much more effort in it.

The main difference between the os-works xfdesktop and the one in svn is 
in the menu handling. Brian has indicated that he would be ready to 
accept patches to port that across but that he isn't interested in doing 
it himself.
