<Swing Dev>  Review Request: Use GTK LAF as the System LAF under Xfce

To me the code changes look fine. The only concern is that you check the
DESKTOP_SESSION for "xfce" and "xfce4" values only. Can this environment
variable ever be equal to, say, "xfce3", or "xfce5", and what should be
done about it in that case? Perhaps we should only check that the string
starts with "xfce" and not care about the remaining characters at all?
BTW, there's also some weird logic around the sun.desktop property in
SynthLookAndFeel.java that is about text antialiasing support. Have you
verified if any changes are required to that code as well?
