I don't know but I think you guys missed the point.... IMHO he just gave the
games for an example, but I think he was meaning apps in general. I also
miss a place where I can find doc about Xfce libs, maybe an small tutorial
on what each lib provide, where to start looking, etc. For games, as you
people have pointed, there should be little use for xfce libs, but for other
apps in general, we could not be reinventing the wheel....
For example, a friend of mine (Alexandre Moreira, also on the list) is
working on a "pluggable text editor", and he probably could make good use of
some things already on the xfce libs...

I didn't check the new website completely ( blame NWN2... :-P ) to see if
the info is there. If it is, ignore me :-P
