Of course in some sense our launchers probably should be buttons, they
just aren't because the frame would look ugly...

Or as people have suggested many times, the launchers could work
exactly like desktop icon launchers in nautilus, i.e. panel should
just be a shelf that's the same as desktop background but on top.
Then you'd have to double-click them by default of course and they
would really not be very button-like.

Yep, it's all model-view-rific. If you use the keybinding to toggle
the mode, etc. it should show up in the applet.
