I love XFCE as well. ;) 

I have volunteered to maintain it in fedora extras, and just yesterday
put up some new packages for review. See:

So far I seem to have only had one download of the packages. 
Perhaps XFCE just isn't that popular?

I do have fc3-RPMS available as well, so feel free to try them out and
let me know if they work/don't work for you. 

I'm hoping to get some good feedback from the specs/packages and find
someone interested in sponsoring me to maintain the xfce packages in
fedora extras.
