Hi Glen,

I am wondering if and how good Thunar, or also the other Xfce
components, provide "Accessibility libraries" [0].

Maybe tests for the UI can be written in Python and with the help from
Linux Desktop Testing Project [1].

Unit testing tools are collected on this page [2].

Well, to start writing some tests, we need clear specifications …
