Problems:

* It does not show the label anymore, even when unselecting "Show values". What
if you got two interfaces (eth0, wlan0)?

* The values are already shown in the tooltip.

> Patch works fine, but it takes a lot of space in the panel.

Suggestions:

* Make unit names shorter (kByte => kiB).

* Use smaller horizontal spaces.

* Similar to the panel date and time plugin, make the font a little bit
smaller. Then put both values on the right side of the bars and on top of each
other, like this (it's a bit hard to do in ASCII, but I think you'll get the
idea):

[    ] || [ D: 0.0kiB ]
[eth0] || [           ]
[    ] || [ U: 0.0kiB ]

* Another idea: Use colors for down and up, like those for the bars.
