Re: GlobalMenu Application for inclusion as a GNOME module

A follow up on this.

Recently I was able to integrate global menu into gnome-panel's application
menu applet with an GTK_MODULE.

Not perfect but it works.

(Jud: last mail didn't get into the list).

A full integration is impossible unless gnome-panel is modified.

What I was planning to implement is the 'place beside' solution
mentioned in the second paragraph. At this point I believe patching
gnome-panel for this new behavior is already meaningless, since the
panel is going to fade away in GNOME 3.
