sure, I've used modemlights_applet as my example, I already knew its
code and made my gnome1 applet looking at it...

it was greping for 'panel_applet_new' on modemlights.c that I found out
I should not use it =D

that will be great, if you would allow me a wishlist, I'd ask that
not only the helper macros BONOBO_... things are documented as ways
