Is that true?  I don't see it in the Arch announcements (also shown as 
news on the website), which I would hope it would be if it was a newly 
required change.

(Also I last updated two days ago, still am using "exec 
ck-launch-session startxfce4", and haven't noticed anything being 
broken.  Of course, I manually mounted my USB sticks with "sudo mount" 
anyway so I might not have noticed...)
