The main bottleneck is Developer support then, to maintain a large 
codebase; as I've stated before, it's time for xfce to become 
mainstream, more 'heavy' cause we already have a lighter DE -- LXDE 
which all distros are adopting instead of XFCE for a light weight distro 
(Lubuntu is 12th while Xubuntu is 26th on distrowatch), so the 
objectives of Xfce needs to change.
