I have been despised by some Xfce developer(s) to have said that there is a mess and nobody cares about integrating the Xfce Goodies into any distro, but here it is:

1. There is *no* need for Xfce 4.6 wrt to the keyboard issue!
2. Is there any *justifiable* reason for *not* including xfce4-xkb-plugin >=0.5.0 instead of the antique 0.4.3? With the latest xfce4-xkb-plugin you can do everything, see this pic: http://beranger.org/blogo21/new_xkb-plugin.png

Yes, you can set the keyboard layout switch key too, and yes, the latest xfce4-xkb-plugin doesn't depend on any newer Xfce!
