Me, too.

I know that I have one or two entries in my Xfce menu for some avahi
stuff, but I really don't know what this is for. It was just there as a
dependency for another package.

The only thing which has changed since I'm forced to using CK and PK is
that I had to edit my .xinitrc and add a ck-launch-session, and that I
now have again another daemon running on my system for features I had
before, too, without these unnecessary, additional, resource eating
stuff, which makes in the best case my system slower. But something
doesn't work anymore without this CK and PK stuff. I currently can't
remember what that was.

The same with all those vfs daemons, which I really don't need and
don't know what they are for. Or udisks-daemon. Some time it was just
running on my system. I don't know why. I didn't start it by myself. I
could access all my disks and devices without it before.

Those developments are not always the best. And I'm really worried
about them.

I know, this is getting a bit off-topic. But it has to be said.
