That's more or less what I do at the moment, by patching libxfce4util to
add the desktop-base folder in XFCE_RESOURCE_CONFIGS (which is
initialized to content of XDG_CONFIG_DIRS and /etc/xdg). But it defeats
the initial purpose of XDG_CONFIG_DIRS and is clearly not consistent
with other distros.

Well, some of them use startxfce4 which in turns
run /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc. So I need to check that too.

The good thing with XDG_CONFIG_DIRS is that everybody can benefits and
it doesn't violate the specs.
