Maybe dbus in the Recommends is too strong (libdbus-1-3 already recommends
dbus). And since this cannot work without hal (depends on dbus), hal at least
should be in the Suggests (same level as for sudo).

I agree that reading the README is still mandatory (does not this apply to any
package ?), but IMHO adding a user to a group is more easy than dealing with
/etc/sudoers (though the latter is not so difficult).

As far as I understand  #422349 fix (when available) which is dbus related will
not be beneficial to xfce4-session if xfce4-session is not built against dbus.

Best regards,

Pascal D.
