I no longer hang out on the Xubuntu mailing lists, but if someone
around here does perhaps this info could be forwarded on? I remember
the early days of the list being full of people asking for
enhancements or changes to the core desktop, I imagine there would be
a lot of interest. Similar for any other substantial distribution that
uses Xfce as the default desktop.
