That if xfce4 Depends: xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin, which in turn Depends:
pulseaudio, then suddenly xfce4 always pulls in pulseaudio, even though
it doesn't actually depend on pulseaudio.

I agree that the xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin is useless without pulseaudio,
so there you want a Depends. But XFCE doesn't depend on the
xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin. In fact, with a clean install, the default
panel configuration doesn't even include that plugin.
