An applet 'container' would be the solution, yes?  Sort of like window
groups in e, except applet groups.  A container that all new applets go
into, or perhaps just applets that want to go into it.  Then you could
define multiple containers with perhaps special conditions on them,
conditions of what type of applets they should attract.  Then you could say
define a Launchers container,  a Monitors container, etc.

This would be some nice functionality to go into the panel in HEAD perhaps?
