Panel applications and libgtop

Hi all,

Just a quick question.  Compiling gnome-core on Solaris gives me loads of little 
panel applets that are esentially useless.  This is because they're supposed to 
be monitoring various system performance measures, and do this in *very* 
system-specific ways.

But we also have the libgtop library, which is supposed to deliver a whole batch 
of clever little system-non-specific APIs so that you can get this information 
no matter which OS you're running on.

Am I missing the point here, or should things that go in core be built to use 
gtop, and as such, gtop should be added to gnome-libs?  This would solve *so* 
many cross-platform issues.

Were this to happen, I for one would be very willing to help ensure the API on 
Solaris does as intended.
