Hey Eric, happy to see you again :D

yeah, you are right, XFCE isnt so lightweight anymore.
 It looks like gnome 2.x will be supported for Natty, because there is a
need for a fallback if the driver doesnt work or the computer doesn support
it, so it seems we have no big problem continuing with gnome panels. and
also this is not so important for us anyway, we are very different from
ubuntu default desktop so....
