Thanks for tacking this, I'll made the necessary modifications.

If this could be limited to pcmanfm/libfm, that will be nice :) Handle
new features after Feature Freeze is difficult and a long process, and
we can't spend this time to fix bugs.

I don't think the theming is really needed for this realease.

For now, logout working good. Introducing a new mechanism now will need
testing/bug fixes. It's a good think, but not sure it's necessary for
this release.

I'm working on it.

It's working since some times.

Yes, and unfortunately, boot process on Lucid have many changes since
Karmic :(
