how about letting/standardizing/having end-users install applets into
their ~desktop directories?  put a nice UI on that.... make it shiny and
fun.  kind of like using the malodorous "windows update" or the Active
Desktop crap on windows.  if root runs it, give the option to install to
either the system folders or to root's personal desktop folders.

splitting the applets out into their own little bubbles of self-contained
usefulness would probably be a good thing.  installing a huge mass of them
from one package is... stinky.  i can see a
task-ximian-gnome-panel-applets in the making.... :)

or in universities that don't allow people to do roaming profiles the
'right' way, but instead lock down the local desktop to the fullest extent

locking it down system-wide via a gnome mechanism would suuuure be nicer
than trying to do it with permissions and file ownership in home
