Is is possible to develop panel applets using the Gnome2 and Gtk2 bindings in their current state? There's not a lot of info in the Gnome2 man pages, and the only tutorials I can find are on Gtk2, and don't cover Gnome2 at all.

Sure you can! There are several existing applets already, using Gtk2::TrayIcon (available from sourceforge and i think from CPAN, but not part of the bindings release set), e.g., YARSSR:

There are bindings for libpanelapplet in CVS, as Gnome2::PanelApplet, but last i recall there was some minor bug in them that kept them from working. Just now i went through to compile them and possibly put a tarball up on sourceforge, and found what i think is a pretty interesting bug, so we'll see how that pans out.

Walk softly, and carry a BFG-9000.
