I didn't mean to offend anyone, sorry if you understood that.

I think I'd use xfdiff, xfkc, xfce4-timer-plugin.
The problem really is: why shouldn't we let "normal" Debian users take
advantage of these plugins? With "normal" user I mean a user who
doesn't know of the pkg-xfce team, of its svn, doesn't know how to
build packages, ... . If we upload those packages, anyone with a
"apt-cache search", or with any other tool (aptitude, synaptic,
kpackage, adopt, ...) can download the package.
Let's say one has xfce and wants a graphical diff tool (like xfdiff).
Not founding anything specific to xfce, he installs kcompare (like I
did), or any other tool. But I consider this a rather stupid thing,
since a graphical tool for xfce already exists, and it's xfdiff, but he
can't find it on Debian repositories.
Can you get my point?
