I think we already started this a bit by finishing the 4.8 tasks in
xfce4-session and xfdesktop. I can take care of the bug-fixing-only in
xfconf (already did that, added myself to the cc-list of the bugs). We
could consider moving the menu plugin to the panel, that saves a bit
of maintenance in xfdesktop.

Yes please. Always better to have this out in the public.

Good luck with your work at Kakai. They are being very mysterious
about the whole thing, but I'm pretty sure it will be awesome else you
wouldn't spend so much time on it ;-).
