Hello Xubuntu Developers & Contributors,

 After a healthy discussion today on #xubuntu-devel, I've updated the
Xubuntu karmic seeds to replace gnome-power-manager with
xfce4-power-manager. This in no way an indication that we'll be shipping
xfce4-power-manager instead of gnome-power-manager for karmic but is instead
an opportunity for us to test, provide feedback, and improve
xfce4-power-manager. However, don't let my previous sentence be an
indication that we won't either - infact, I'm personally eager to see us
work out any kinks/problems there might be with xfce4-power-manager so that
we can!
