Recently there was a question asking if tranparent applets were
possible, but a transparent panel (like in Eterm, gnome-terminal)
would be cool too. Then you could have transparent applets on a
transparent panel :)

I do not recall discussion of a transparent panel, but I would vote
for it to go on the wishlist.

Transparent applets are possible, especially after the next gnome-core
release. (There is a bug in 1.1.5 breaking transparent applets that
are not square)

A screen shot showing a few applets (in progress) that support
transparency is here:

Some will be available after the 1.1.6 gnome-core release, but not
before for the reason already stated above.
