Hmm. That's very annoying. I use it on a daily basis.

I see that the reason is given in https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=955349
'uses unmaintained libunique'.

Any further comments on what would be required to get this back?  Was
libunique actually broken/a problem, or merely unmaintained? 

Is there something else one should use to do the same job, in which
case maybe the best thing is to update xfce-notes-plugin to use it?
Assuming that's not too difficult I don't mind doing some work to get
it back in a ship-able state.

Or it there something else that is still around that does the same job
as the notes plugin?  It's quite unusual in the way it works.
