It doesn't have anything related to Xfce hard-coded, so yeah, it would
be possible to use this module in other projects. It's only really
useful for projects with several independent components though. But if
we package it independently anyway, I wouldn't mind giving it a
different name.

The site is a general python module archive, so it's not suprising that
they also have a few GNOME and KDE modules there. ;)

How about :crossref:? :ext...: sounds like it is capable of linking to
arbitrary URIs, which the module doesn't support. Anyway, we can still
sort out the naming issue later, first I need some feedback on the
xfce4-dev-tools stuff I talked about earlier in the mail.
