Well, the cropped icons is a bug that should get fixed, right Nick?

Regardless, someone is using XfceSystray, so we can't remove it.  Just
leave it.  If you *really* want to remove it, just mark it as
deprecated and we'll remove it in a year or 2 or whatever.  There's
really no reason to remove stuff -- we just "want" to.

Honestly, I'm not entirely sure we should be breaking ABI period, but I
don't really feel all that strongly about it.
