Well, considering there is a UI and string freeze for GNOME2 we have to go
with what's there right now. The panel-menu applet probably still needs some
work and a lot of testing and it also resides in gnome-applets right now
where it would have to be moved to gnome-panel to make it a default setup.

But on a good note, GNOME2 will have 1 clock applet and 1 mail applet! (And
1 cpu/mem/swap applet also)
