I agree completely with the first part of this, but I'd like to suggest
a notification area thing for alarms instead. An applet is generally
more for interaction or viewing of information. You set alarms and
forget about them (until the alarm goes off) - its not like you check
every five minutes what time the alarm is for or reset the alarm all the
The only negative is crowding the status area - probably part of the
reason evolution-alarm-daemon doesn't notify you of its existance in the
status area. But your still not crowding it as much as an applet would
(it being the panel)
