There's still references to being lightweight in the Xubuntu Strategy
Document [1]. Please note that it is ultimately the document steering
the development, not suggestions in the mailing list.

While I use gedit myself as well, would you like to rationalize why this
would be a good move from a generic Xubuntu user point of view?


P.S. It's not a bad idea to look at my blog article about useful
suggestions [2]. Same goes for everybody.
