Correct me if I'm wrong.  A normal applet must ALWAYS be on the panel, or be
completely removed, no?  And if you start an applet, it jsut puts it on the
first available place, on the first panel, even if the panel is full.  I run
two panels, and the default panel to place applets is full.  The applets aren't
even visible.  I have to manually plave applets on the correct panel.  And then
I still have to must them over to the right side.  An applet that just
displayes icons would solve this problem, no?  Place the applet where you want
it, and all your little info icons would appear in it, making life much easier.
