We are the *Debian* Xfce team, not the ubuntu one. If you want to adjust
some things on the packages you import in ubuntu, that's your right, but
you can't ask us to follow theses changes.

The current versions (in unstable) were chosen in order to be sure their
wouldn't be problems with dpkg and version order.

Now that we have two versions it seems ok to follow the versioning and
use / 0.2.0 because we are pretty sure the next version numbers
will be greater. (I *don't* want to be surprised when the offical exo
will be released, if its version is 0.3.1 ...)

We may have problems with some stranges arches, I really don't know.
Maybe it's a good idea, but i'd want some more answers on the list
before changing anything :)
