tuXlab and xubuntu

Seeing how Xubuntu is very well suited to thin-client environments, and one
of the most beneficial uses of Edubuntu is thin-clients, I say this is a
nice marriage or concepts.

Should we try to bring TuxLabs into the Ubuntu fold, or provide support?
They seem to be able to take the best from both Edubuntu and Xubuntu on
there own.
