panel question (swallowing)

browsing the sources i found that the identifiers "Swallow" and
"Extern" (sp?) are available as attributes to applications started by
the panel.

"Extern" kust starts an application in it's own root window.

"Swallow" seems only to work with gnome applets.

My question is: Is anybody working on swallowing arbitrary
applications (the fvwm-pager as a substitute for pager_applet,
xosview, xconsole, asclock and various other goodies) into the panel?

if not, are there any ideas how this can be done (without wm support)?
