I tried out graveman for ex .. and i still need to use cdrecord for
multisession cds,  that app, in my opinion, still needs to improve ...
 (if xfburn will take times to be fully usable)

TEMPORARILY  removing <-- that's a key word :).

i've misunderstood ... it seems

i was not expecting to see sylpheed (gtk2) in main  and less ..
graveman ... but if that will be possible .. it's really cool.

yes i will, i'll check xubuntu-desktop to see its dependencies ...  my
ideas is to have a layout of the wiki page that reproduces the final
xubuntu menu, where step by step will be highligthed the pkges that
have been included in main, as the menu is made from desktop files it
could be useful to have them in the correct menu section. I'll explain
better what i mean  within another mail ...  and i hope to find the
time to do that by sunday.
