I know I'm not really active enough in the development to have much of
a say, but I kind of like the current dual panel approach.  It took
some getting-used to from KDE and Windows, but I've really come to
appreciate it.  I don't see it as "copying Windows", but rather it
just offering more space.  On my Windows system (which is widescreen),
the taskbar has to share space between the Vista orb thing, the quick
launch section, the system tray, the clock, and the task panel.  Some
(apparently more then I thought) would be happy with this, but I like
to have more space and a less cluttered panel.  Just my opinion (and I
do realize that I can modify the Xfce panel myself; I just like to
have good defaults).

Really nice xfwm4 theme!
