+1 for that.

The excellent worker file manager:

http://www.boomerangsworld.de/cms/worker

Unless I'm reading top wrong (on Debian), it consumes about 4 MB memory, with virtually no dependencies. All the features makes it the only GUI tool you need except for TWM.

SlackBuilds has it.

I second that. Worker is the application I install first in addition to official packages in every new Slackware (the second one being geany).

I would like to have the firmware files needed to get wifi dongles to work. For example, it would be nice for wifi dongles that use the ar9721 chipset to work out of the box, instead of requiring a separate firmware download.

I asked the same thing. At the present time, there are issues getting recent versions to compile without PAM.
You can use 2.20.11 from SBo, works flawlessly here including suspend/hibernate from the greeter window. Which is an essential feature on multiuser PC's. I've never had great luck with the "new login" feature.

I decided to quit fighting it and just use kdm -- it works fine, and aside from not supporting suspend/hibernate from the greeter window, it does everything I want it to do.
wol, or another application capable of sending magic packets for wake on lan, would be a great addition to Slackware.

Instead of GDM I would rather like to see SliM in Slackware. I couldn't care less about display managers, I don't use them, but I would think that SliM is a better fit for XFCE than GDM.

MyPaint.

Getting MyPaint to work in Slackware currently seems to require a recompile of pygtk with numpy support.

EDITED TO ADD:
I consider having to recompile an official package a big maintenance pain, basically because I'd have to do it for every upgrade.

Instead of GDM, why not Qingy display manager? It's lightweight, and is independent of the desktop. I think it mostly relies on DirectFB. I think it does use PAM, but I'm not sure if it's required or optional.
