None i'm aware of, IMHO the best way currently is to take a look into
the existing panel plugins

The panel is linked to libxfce4panel, libxfce4util and libxfcegui4; but
i think you could use libexo if needed (but may be a bit overkill for a
panel plugin).

Your own choice, you're the author remember ? :D

I think you can, if it's not the case, just drop a note here, some admin
will do it for you.
