I don't see what it offers over xfce4-mixer and it's plugin. ANd it's
crashing for people with more than one soundcard or USB soundcards.

Dead upstream, that's why we switched to evince-gtk.

I like this on, not sure if we should focus on console apps on a desktop

Dead upstream, I still maintain and use it in the LXDE spin, but for
Xfce we should IHMO stick to the xfce4-notes-plugin.

We already have this in thunar through the thunar-media-tags-plugin and
thunar-bulk-rename (which can deal with tags, too).

Never tried it.

Not really usefull IHMO.

Thanks for your suggestions. I think we should focus on bringing the
best of *Xfce*, but I am looking forward to hear more opinions.

Best regards,
