Maybe I can offer another perspective here - from a users point of view: 
It appears all Xubuntu developers are also users, and have their 
preferences as users, which they would like to see satisfied when they 
are acting as developers. Now it appears that there is a major choice to 
be made: In case you cannto have both, is user-friendly-ness/stability 
more important or  efficiency/lightweight-ness? Why not ask the users? 
Xubuntu developers are users, too, but maybe not the most typical users. 
Let the users AND the developers vote, each in their respective roles, 
and the decision might be much easier.

cheers and thank you for an excellent product
