I don't have a machine where this would be useful, so I can't test it
out for you. But it's always awesome to have people making cool stuff.

Next time though, don't attach such a big attachment to the mailing
list. I use webmail, so it's not such a big deal, but believe it or
not there are still people on low bandwidth lines, or using corporate
email accounts with size limits.

There is a lot of background busy work going on with the beta releases
of Xfce 4.6, so you might have trouble getting core dev attention.
That said, you should totally set this up as an Xfce goodies project.
