Yep, true. It should be more a list. The about page should be a short
intro to xfce, the features page (duno if the name is ok) will extend
The project pages will contain screenshots, developer info, hidden

Maybe they aren't that important, but it's good to know that each lib
does and the project page is IMHO a good place to drop this

I did that everywhere, as far as i know...
