Agreed.  In *general*, however, (a) seems to apply (perhaps
coincidentally).  (b), (c), and (d) are irrelevant to OnlyShowIn, and
I guess (e) is pretty much always the case in the OSS world ^_~.

So yes, if any of the .desktop files for the Xfce settings panels
don't have OnlyShowIn=XFCE; in them, then I'd consider that our bug.
Otherwise, it's up to the author to decide if the app is truly only
useful in Xfce.
