	I think it makes sense to have "core panel functionality" in the panel.
So along with the ones you mention, I would include the pager and
tasklist and the notification area. Oh and Wanda is a misfit no matter
where you put the old dear so I think the panel is as good a place as

	Weird and historical it still kinda is, but its not totally wacky any

	Btw, there's no reason why we have to these products in seperate
components in bugzilla. We could move all applets into gnome-applets
component and make gnome-panel-maint the maintainer of the panel ones.
