A well, I knew this was gone happen, so I won't spend any words on it.

A couple of defaults are nice, they also give an idea what values are
used. You could even
use (XFCE_SM_CLIENT_PRIORITY_WM - 1) to start before the window
manager, which is nice.
Only the typedef is confusing since is not used in any of the api like
you already said.
