There's some in the CVS in the module gnome-panel. But beware! Last
time I looked, some of the "tutorial" part of it was directly
misleading (apparently outdated). There's a convenient reference page,
though. And you can look at the examples. You need to change the
applet setup and switch to using GConf, and of course port the GUI
code to GTK 2. But it's not that bad.

I don't why the documentation situation isn't improved. You should
probably bug Mark McLoughlin. At least the documentation ought to
appear at under the API references section.
