This makes me nervous. If it were this easy the Xubuntu team might
commit to it as well, but Micah said we don't have the resources to
maintain Xfce ourselves. You can't just "do nothing" for the last two
years, someone needs to keep an eye out for security problems and
other failures that crop up in newer versions that need to be
backported to the LTS.
