Considering that the Xfce audience is quite international, I imagine
that many users would simply be delighted to have a simple graphical
utility for configuring the Keyboard layout (that is, no more nano
/etc/X11/xorg.conf). As for offering Xfce to end-users, which cannot
or are not interested in learning anything more than point and click,
this "out-of-the-box" mcs plugin would represent a somewhat best

It would be an important addition to the Desktop environment as a
whole if Xfkc integrates well with Xfce and is provided to users as an
official plugin (considering the libxklavier dependency).
