XFCE could be deleted, yes. XFCE requires gtk+, but so does Seamonkey 
(or Thunderbird/Firefox). Other than that I don't think there's anything 
else that XFCE uses that wouldn't be useful for a QT/KDE implementation. 
Alexander probably knows better though.

Squashfs is due for an upgrade, yes. If you manage to do that I'd accept 
a patch (so long as it actually works and applies cleanly. ;) )
