Installing Tomboy required 32mb of downloads.  I forgot to check the
installed disk space, but 32mb is too much.  It used ~11.5mb of RAM on

I'm not sure what Steve means about discoverability of the Xfce app, but
with regards to the shortcomings of the xfce app . . .  I don't think it's a
bad app.  I just think gnote is better.  Regarding another upstream . . .  I
guess that is somewhat of a maintenance issue.  I'm not sure how problematic
others may find the "another upstream" to be.
