How do you add (or change) multimedia key shortcuts in Xubuntu.
Specfically I would like to set the Forward and Back keys to Next and Previous tracks in Exaile using the xkeys plugin.

I don't use XFCE myself but I found this thread that suggests that you can use the keyboard settings to set
exaile --next and
exaile --prev. If that doesn't work out of the box, you may need to see what keycodes these media keys use with
xev and put them in your .Xmodmap as described in the FAQ.
