The application will be small and parts need to be integrated in 
garcon, not the editor. So IMHO we can stuff this in xfce4-settings. 
This is probably the most required application so that kinda makes it 
important for core.

We don't need code yet, first a design of the interface and a scope of 
the functionality the application should have. After that we can start 
with code.
