That sounds like it should be fairly easy to do. It makes the plugin 
slightly less flexible, I guess, because the panel needs to be in the 
same place it was when compiling the plugin, but that should be the case 
in almost any situation.

If anyone wants to provide a patch, I can easily add this.
