Cool! I'll be sure to take a look. I'm wondering: I've wanted to
somehow add alarm clock support to Rhythmbox.. do you think your panel
applet would be a suitable place to put it? It seems like you've
gotten all the bonobo stuff sorted out to talk to Rhythmbox (well,
except for the one issue you mentioned :) so alarm support would
basically entail adding a UI for it and then just signalling Rhythmbox
to start playing at the appropriate time (fancy features like eg. fade
in could wait a while).

If I wrote a patch to your applet, would you be interested in it? BTW,
I filed a bug against Rhythmbox for this initially, bug #145421

Have fun,
