I also vote for Dapper update... it is a LTS release after all...  
Personally I may even skip Edgy and update to Feisty in April...  at  
least I do not see any strong  reason to switch to Edgy at the  
moment... Though I guess for Xubuntu it should be more substantial  
improvement than for Ubuntu is general...
