Take your time - I've lived fine with few feedback.

Because of I am maintainer for xfce in yocto-project I am simply using
these patches. OK for embedded devices the situation is a bit
different from PC:

* have several platforms (e.g RaspberryPi) which don't backup RTC
* installing a whole new image with default settings for locale (which
don't fit my needs) is daily's job.

I would be fine with a smaller solution without map but as I ported it
from gnome and personally liked it I did with maps.
