the panel code needs to be cleaned up still ... there is quite a lot of
dirty code here and there, that just needs to be squashed ...

otherwise it is slightly ugly but I need to document the initial
"conversation" of applets somewhere ... this was the cleanest solution
for the problems I found at that moment, but it means there are several
calls ... and it's not straight forward as to what is happening inisde the

I think this would be the right (and clean) solution ... shouldn't be hard ..
... I can't do it now, (I'll do it when I get back from work) ... so if you
want to do it ... go right ahead ...
