I'm going to try to review the code this week (was busy with server
stuff and power management last week). When the git server is running
again, I'll also make you a git account so you can push you changes in
the Xfce git branches directly (not master, but a branch, but makes it
easier to merge things).

You work will probably also tough xfwm4 and xfce4-settings in the end,
then you can make branches for your work there too.
