It will be done on the schedule with 2.30, but it is too late to propose
modules or major dependency changes for 2.30.  3.0 is more of an open
question as, in it's current incarnation, it has a panel applet which of
course wouldn't be accepted for 3.0.  I think it's too early to tell
what will happen with the code for 3.0.

But, as it is looking to become an XDG spec, I would hope that GNOME 3
would support it as such.

I'd like to think that the code in libappindicator would useful, and
maybe even migrate into a replacement for GtkStatusIcon in GTK+.  The
applet obviously isn't.  But, that is what press releases describe as a
"forward looking statement." ;)
