I know it's been there, but no one uses it because we don't have it
turned on by default, and gtk/libgnomeui don't support it. It also
hasn't been made explicit when to use this vs. an applet.
Doesn't it use the same setup as the KDE one? I'd personally like to
see the protocol for it cleaned up and written down and put on
freedesktop.org, and at that point I think it'd even be reasonable to
have a GTK feature for this, though I don't know if others would
agree. Certainly a libgnomeui feature.
