The package named sylpheed is actually version 2.X so it is the gtk2

2) Some Xfce goodies should be recommended (aptitude

try apt-cache rdepends xfce4-toys and the same for trigger launcher ;)

3) Maybe some more packages - at least suggested, from
> XubuntuProposedPackages. Perhaps gFTP, GIMV.

these may be on the CD but are not standard desktop material IMHO
they are targeted mostly at experienced user who will install them if they
but we should not makethe base desktop install too heavy.If not for the disk
space, than
to keep the menus cleaner.
