[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#760778: xfce4-session: Please depend on gnome-orca

So, I see no problem with adding gnome-orca to task-xfce-desktop, given
those installation size numbers.

I sympathize with Yves in wanting to keep the xfce4-* packages
containing only actual upstream XFCE stuff; that's part of why we have
the task packages to add currently missing (and in some ways suboptimal)
bits -- including network-manager-gnome already.

Bear in mind that accessability is one of the most important criteria
for picking the default desktop -- for the reasons Samuel has given.
It could easily be *the* determining factor between xfce and gnome for

I don't know if making this change will get xfce close enough to
gnome's accessability level to make the cut.
