Alright, that's great, let's do this. For real this time ;-)

Also, having all (most) Xfce-related development in one location sounds 
like a good thing to me.

The only concern I would have for this is the increased maintainance for 
CVS/SVN accounts, but that's up to Auke to comment on. And maybe the 
increased band-width.

I'd prefer all separate packages to be toplevel modules. Classification 
into core, apps, extra, whatever can be done on the website, distro 
packaging, and does not have to be mirrored in the source tree layout. 
This is what GNOME does as well. On the other hand, moving things around 
in svn is supposed to be a lot easier, isn't it?
