I'm for including it in the applets that are shipped with the
gnome-panel (like the notification area, the clock, etc.) this is
because there are some major problems with QL at the moment that can be
fixed only incorporating it into the panel:

1) in order to make the applications launched with QL to have session
management support you need to make the applet a shared lib, but this
makes the applet not localizable, that is the labels will be always
displayed in english.

2) lack of consinstency between the launchers on the panel and the
launchers in QL.

3) QL cannot handle action buttons.

I think that QL can be included in GNOME only if it's incorporated in
the panel, so it's not only up to me but even the gnome-panel mantainer
have to agree with this inclusion
