Excellent. Too often I see people catting /dev/urandom into files and
then committing the result!
Note, though, that getting SVN access isn't a license to commit
anywhere. Most (well, maybe about half) of the modules are owned by
someone, and we have a policy of not committing non-trivial patches to
other people's modules without asking first.

I knew your name sounded familiar... awesome mail client ^_^.

I'm ok with this, but we'll need to discuss it among the other core
devs. Would you mind popping into #xfce-dev so we can get to know you a
bit? Just PM one of us and ask for voice.
