I can change the copyright string so people go to bugzilla, that will
at least quiet things down for you. Regarding my rewrite, it's still
on the TODO list and now we depend on GIO a lot of things can be fixed
quite easily, however the amount of developers working on the Xfce
core is already (extremely?) low, so I'd rather focus on that until
4.8 is released (still have a panel to get into shape). But you never
know, maybe I'm done with other stuff and fixup some Mousepad issues
and do a development release. Who knows, but it's definitely not dead
