My two cents on this: a panel that treats people and documents as true
top-level objects (like gimmie does) is an exciting and innovative
future that GNOME should be actively pursuing. It would be a shame if
this great experiment got dropped out of gimmie.
[If I were GNOME BDFL, the question I would ask would not be 'should
the gimmie applet be in GNOME', but rather 'how can GNOME replace the
panel with the gimmie dock (and/or o-d?), and drop applets altogether
in favor of widgets/gadgets/plasma-like technology.' And I'd be
begging njp to make gimmie dock (and/or o-d?) as shiny as awn, but
without the crack-y gnome-1.0-y prefs panel ;) ]
