Hey Jonas!

I've been working on porting Xfce Settings Manager and your changes to exo
have helped move that right along.  I've done considerable testing and
think it's stable enough for continuing development.  Your changes have
been merged in here:
http://git.xfce.org/xfce/exo/commit/?id=c4b773593c2441d6518828ac6ccc9c5e4b610256

Thanks a bunch (and sorry for taking 339 days to finally get around to it!)
Sean
