I don't see gnome-applets as part of GNOME 3. But it doesn't mean we
cannot ship gnome-applets 3.x.

GNOME 3 is about gnome-shell. Gnome-applets will always be a fallback. A
fallback which includes gnome-applets would be nice. But it is a
still fallback.

So the statement: gnome 3 is not going to include them is wrong. I
already mentioned I expect a gnome-applets 3.x during GNOME 3.2
timeframe. However, officially it will stay as a fallback.

Meaning: If you want to develop something for GNOME 3, it should be an
extension to gnome-shell, not an applet.
