Re: Should be an Applet - not in the Notification Area

I am not an expert in the area of Applets, but making it strictly a Gnome applet would restrict its usage to Gnome.  So if I wanted to run it under xfce4 or some other Window Manager, the applet would need re-written for each window-manager implementation.  The notification (icon box) area is a standard that is usable regardless of WM (or it should be).  Even though it is technically a gnome application, making it as portable as possible is a good thing.

Hope that answers your question.
