What exactly do you mean by "ported directly"?

As the deskbar-applet maintainer I'm very concerned that are no clear
plans for an applet/desktop widget framework, yet. I guess porting an
applet to the new yet-to-be-invented framework would take considerable
time. Because there's currently no plan for a new framework it will take
some time until there is a time and the framework is actually usable.
Hopefully it's not already too late to start porting applets then. I
think it would be a big mistake to omit applets in the new gnome desktop
