Yes they should be xfce-related
But the point is not showing off xfce in detriment of a nice collection of
tools, if we find something more appropriate for editor/terimal/media than
the current ones we should use those. But since the former were written by
xfce developers I assume we will hardly find better ones.
I used to use multi-gnome-terminal which is a gtk1.2 gnome1 app and seems
light enough, so if it turns out to be lighter than xfce4-terminal it would
be ok.
But the terminal app is the least controversial since thos who use the cmd
line can easily chose their preferred one.
