not to mention the compatibility improvements with previously tuned
desktop environments:  in a conversation with erig garrison late last
year, he pointed out that the absolutely best way to make XFCE look
good on the XO display was to simply scale the display so that its
dimensions were closer to what the designers used.  no more unclickable
icons, no more unreadable text.
