I think an appropriate short term solution is one of the following

(1) In the panel menu, right after "Add to panel" and "Delete panel",
there should be a "Refresh Panel Applets List" option.
(2) There could be some script to run that signals the panel to rescan
the applet directory. So rpm's and install scripts could call this
whenever they install new software.

In fact, we should have both! It's either that or use FAM (like nautilus
does) to detect new applets or menu items.
