I'd favour the second option - perhaps 'gnome-panel --refresh' which
could be called on install and uninstall, in spec files etc. I don't
think there should be a user visible means of doing this, as it would
almost always have no effect if the install process was handled as
above. Also, its very hard to explain why/when a user would need to
refresh the panel.
