badly. It needs porting to the new panel anyway, which I have been planning
to do for a while.

xfmedia [*] <--- is this already in main ?

no. MOst xfce packages have been approved for main but not actually moved
there yet.
I am currently waiting for approval to upload svn 4.3 snapshot packages to
start testing them
and working on default panel layout and docs.

gqview is installed in breezy and will be probably be kept  for dapper.

yes libnomeui provides session management in most cases I saw it being
depended upon
if gthumb is made to work with gtk soon we might get it in for dapper.
But I have a feeling it is very integrated with gnome, depending only on
lingnomeui sounds
suspicious, but I haven't looked at the sources.

So my idea is now to collect infos about graph section, something like

[x] implies [+] so non need for both in the same line right?
