Distribution? Probably not, but not because it isn't ultra-cool. In
fact, we're trying to slim the core install - only including those
plugins to manage functionality basic to the desktop (tasklist,
launcher) or functionlity that may be historically managed by Xfce
(the mail checker plugin).

The goodies project by berlios is our semi official project for
housing plugins and applications that extend Xfce. That is where the
netload plugin is, in fact. And certainly distros are including the
goodie within Xfce packages, so if you are included there, you are
likely to ship with distros.
