I think the Free Unix Filesystem Standard, which Debian is eventually
to adhere to, should recommend a standard location for such libs.  GNU
programs traditionally used `$prefix/libexec/$package' (so in this
case, /usr/libexec/gnome-panel/) for binaries that are not
user-servicable, but I'm not sure whether this has been adopted by the
FSS people.  Might be worth checking with their documents to avoid a
second location change.
