Heh, I surely misworded my mail since both you and Brian seem to have
understood that I was thinking of replacing xfce core components with
gnome ones. That is and has never been my intention. It is either
replacing an 4.2 xfce component with  one from 4.3 (such as we already
use bennys xfdesktop - even that is not 4.3 technically) if it's mature
enough, or adding components not in xfce proper.(abiword, gnumeric,

So rest assured it will be xfce + additional stuff not just xfce bits
here and there.
