Your missing two fundamental point, because you don't understand bloat.

Xfce is made up of many components, and applications. One of these new applications is X-archiver.

When XFCE is loaded it occupies no memory.

The memory when loaded is less than that of say file-roller.

If you only use CLI tools for dealing with archives you can remove X-Archiver completely from your system and XFCE will function exactly the same as before, only without a GUI for dealing with archives.

Show me the bloat. The falsehood is that you mistake what is integrated from what is loosely coupled.

BTW Memory footprint is not the same as feature Bloat. Loading times !? is not the same as feature bloat.

Your clearly missing one of the strengths of linux wher e you can mix and match components pretty much as will, and choose the best application for *your* purposes.
