Since we are forcing our XDG directory to /etc/xdg/mythbuntu/, we'll
probably need an /etc/xdg/mythbuntu/Thunar/thunarrc i'm guessing right?

Again since we have an /etc/xdg/mythbuntu, which xinitrc really gets used?

Great, glad to hear it will be showing up in xubuntu. What about
xubuntu-system-tools though? It looks like it was in the archive but is
now gone. It provided network-admin i thought for "Manual
configuration" of Xfce.

Yeah we are. Any other items that should go into the wrapper script
and/or be changed you think?

Yeah, i'm glad too. I hadn't realized how great Xfce was until we
started to migrate over :)

Our seeds are very different than most standard desktop seeds, since we
focus around a PVR box. At this point the xfce dependencies that are in
the seed are
XFCE Based Stuff
One more question. Update-notifier, should it be coming up from that
xinitrc as well?
