The patch I'm using on my own box is destructive and not good for public
consumption (attached).  Making that depend on a hidden setting would be
easy, except for one issue: XFCE requires all strings to be translated,
at least for a release.  If I recall correctly, upstream at that point was
in release mode, and I forgot about the issue (hey, on my system the problem
has been dealt with :) ).
