Also, if 'xfce' or 'xf' is part of the name, non-xfce applications/users 
may think twice before installing/adopting it in their applications. 
XConf could be seen as a standard X configuration store, hopefully 
without Xfce dependencies (or as less as possible)... My vote goes to 

Has anyone given any thought how to remove information stored in XConf? 
Upon uninstalling an application who uses it, I'd also like to remove
