I would love to see desktop a independent applet/widget/whatever spec.
I'm just not very confident that we can come up with a spec that
everybody is happy about. This would cause to delay things further.
Feel free to prove me wrong.
How about a simple spec for embedding stuff in the panel at an arbitrary size using dbus and xembed? If GNOME Shell wants to expose a sidebar that applets can be embedded in, the same spec could probably be reused for a different set of applets.
It's not terribly ugly, and if it lacks anything in functionality then it makes up for it in simplicity.
