Squeeze Archive Manager in Gutsy?

I've been using Xubuntu off and on since Dapper, and it was what first
made me a fan of Xfce. I have to say that the Xubuntu and Xfce teams
have done excellent work.
However, one area that I'm dissatisfied with in Xubuntu is the archive
manager. XArchiver has frequently been buggy for me in Feisty, and
often makes me resort to the command line to extract files. This
might be an issue only I have, but I think its interface is also
somewhat primitive in some ways. I think it would be really nice to
have Xubuntu Gutsy use Squeeze (http://squeeze.xfce.org/) instead.
It's still alpha, but my in my--rather limited--experience with it,
it's much more stable and elegant.
I know a package would have to be created and put into the main repos.
I don't think I could do that. But it would be a nice enhancement to
have (if someone else thinks it's worth the time to do it).
Sorry to suggest something without being able to really assist with it.
