There are defines so that you can figure out if you can do size negotiation.
Ans that thing that you were complaining about with get_size was fixed I


One thing that I don't like about deskguide is that for my WM setup, I have
10 desktops, and I get 10 huge deskguide desktops taking up half a panel, as
messed up as gnome-pager was I liked the way it handeled it better (small
desktops stacked on each other)

Try how the panel is now setup on default (when .gnome/panel.d is missing)
I had to create another panel for deskguide because it would barely fit
on my 1200 pixels wide screen if I put it all on the bottom panel.

Although my bigger peeve is the tasklist which doesn't follow any hints as
far as I know, is hard to drag around because it doesn't have a handle,
etc... etc...
