Alright, I'll grab the source and look there.

OK.  Just before I start porting, will GNOME2 docklets work in the GNOME
1 dock status applet?  I would assume yes, but I want to make sure.

Well, again, it won't really be an applet.  It's more a daemon that
*might* have a *docklet* interface.  The idea is for it to be no more an
application than gconf is - it's a user service.  I would have thought
that to be something to sit in the control center, since changing its
settings affects every application the user runs, in a way.

So something like "Magic Folders?"  I am assuming that eventually
gnome-vfs will have settings in the control center, for things like
default SMB username/password, store hosts/user/pass for ftp sites, and
so on.  It would be the same with GMFD, yes?
