i would like to see a screenshot... you could use imagebin... try and come
to #ubuntustudio-devel , we are in the beginnings of moving forward to XFCE,
so now is the time to actively share you findings... and thanks for working
on this... even if we go with XFCE, we will need things like this for folks
to use unity, and having them up front and documented and well supported
would be great...
