in the newest version of the panel there are user and system menus ...
the system menu can be editted after installation ... (and since it's
just a bunch of files making the same config on a bunch of machines is
just dead simple)

then there will be 3 types of a root panel menu  ... one that is there now
is to display both the system and user menu on the same main menu ...
then there are two other choices ... put the system menu in a submenu or put
the user menu in a submenu ... the GUI for configuring this isn't there
however, but should appear shortly
