Problem here is that right now there are 47 ports I've changed or added
for xfce 4.4 (rc, beta). And I find it kinda bloated to duplicate each of
those ports to create a "-devel" version. Think about it, this would
include every xfce component and plugin and so on... I like it more the
way gnome folks are doing it by only checking in final releases, and
providing the "in between" states online as I do...


Right now, as mentioned, I'm working on a rc1 patchset/shar archive and
I'll post the link here as I did it since xfce 4.0 was beta....
