	In terms of ARC definitions, there simpy is no Stable interface for a
program to add its launcher to the panel. Using gconftool-2 like in the
script attached is as close as you'll get, but you'll note that in GNOME
2.10 the location of these panel keys have changed
from /apps/panel/profiles/default to /apps/panel.



# You can modify these to suit

# Apply the schemas
for schema in $(gconftool-2 --all-entries /schemas/apps/panel/objects | awk -F '=' '{print $1}'); do
    gconftool-2 --apply-schema /schemas/apps/panel/objects/$schema /apps/panel/objects/$launcher_id/$schema

# Tweak things
gconftool-2 --set /apps/panel/objects/$launcher_id/object_type -t string launcher-object
gconftool-2 --set /apps/panel/objects/$launcher_id/launcher_location -t string $launcher_path
gconftool-2 --set /apps/panel/objects/$launcher_id/toplevel_id -t string $panel
gconftool-2 --set /apps/panel/objects/$launcher_id/position -t int $position
gconftool-2 --set /apps/panel/objects/$launcher_id/panel_right_stick -t bool $right_stick

object_id_list=$(gconftool-2 --get /apps/panel/general/object_id_list | sed -e "s|]|,$launcher_id]|")

# Finally, add the applet once everything has been setup
gconftool-2 --set /apps/panel/general/object_id_list --type list --list-type string $object_id_list
