Since we clearly have two different ideas for what the app selections
should be: How much work would it be to maintain two seeds and produce
a "light" and a "full flavoured" version of xubuntu? 

I'd say a bit more work would be worth it if ti keeps everybody happy
rather than the repetitive arguing and nobody being happy that we have
trying to get one version.

Not to pick on anyone but the argument that using apps from Ubuntu is
just turning Xubuntu into Ubuntu is ludicrous. Xubuntu *is* based on
Ubuntu, there is a huge amount of stuff in common. The discussion is
about where the balance should be between reusing the Ubuntu stuff and
using stuff from else where. We might get somewhere if we can all
stick to discussing that rather than taking everything that is said
and extrapolating to illogical conclusions :)

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.
