Exactly. on my XFCE I set the taskbar on the panel to display only
icons, and the default taskbar to display Icons and comments (Gnome
way). This way I don't need to kill the default taskbar.

I tried the panel-menu plugin, it's interesting but quite unstable (it
crashed twice my panel).

I've made some tests with wdm: it starts in about 15 seconds on my
laptop (pentium II 300, with 256 megs of RAM), faster than any GDM.
It lacks an user-friendly configuration tool, but with the man pages
setting the background and the logo editing the configuration file is
very simple.

There is a bug in the start script in /etc/init.d that searches the
executable files in the directory /usr/bin/X11 instead that in the
directory /usr/X11R6/bin: I solved with 2 symlinks in the first
directory, then all was fully functional.

Other suggestion for packages: gftp for downloading and manging ftp and ssh.
