Yep, that's pretty much it.  More specifically, it'll bite anyone who
installs Xfce to a different prefix than where libglade is installed.
So in theory anyone who installs distro packages should be fine, since
I'd imagine all distros would install stuff like that to the same place.

The only people this should affect in a way that would be confusing are
people using the GUI installer, who ALSO already have a custom xinitrc
in ~/.config/xfce4/.
