I am a bit learly of updaing exo to a beta1 version, shipping things
that the developers aren't even called a RC yet is kinda scary. 
Take a look at all the xubuntu problem reports that pop up on the Xfce
lists (xubuntu shipped Xfce 4.4beta1 + their patches). 

On the plus side, exo only has one thing that depends on it
(Terminal), and also the current exo doesn't build right under devel,
so updating exo and Terminal might be ok. 

I will do some testing and see how stable new exo/Terminal seem.

Yeah, it is a beta tho, so expect some issues.
