I wanted to do the same with gnome 2. Then those --oaf* command
line options are a very simple way to detect if my applet shall
go on and try to become a gnome 2 panel applet or a window maker
applet. Now it also can start up as a screensaver with help of 
I keep all those "three" programs in one file.
Surely there are many reasons why I shouldn't, but this far, I 
like to have it like that.

I hope you guys are not too angry at me for not following the
normal gnome 2 panel applet standard. ;-)
