We all like flexibility, but in order to create a more consistent 
desktop environment xfdesktop should depend heavily on thunar, for 
example things like right-click->properties on a folder should show the 
same result in Thunar and in xfdesktop, ideally also xfdesktop should 
use thunar's action menu plugins as well.
