Hi Patrik,

I'm a bit too busy to go point by point through your email, but I urge you
(and anyone else serious about making design contributions to Xfce) to read
this: http://www.markboulton.co.uk/journal/visual-design-is-not-a-thing

Remember, design is a family of evidence-based processes. We currently have
data sitting that needs to be analysed in order to redesign interactions
around session saving and resuming, and I don't have the time to get
started on that. Anyone is free to help, so long as they understand the
basics of quantitative analysis and grounded theory.
