Style "XFce Main Panel"		StartIconic

to your ~/.xfce/xfwmrc file should do the trick.  You'll still be able to
bring up the panel if you want, by using your right-click to bring up a
list of the currently running Apps.

Now, if you don't even want to be able to bring up the panel at all, so
it's like it's not even running at all, you could add this instead:

Style "XFce Main Panel"		StartIconic, CirculateSkip, CirculateSkipIcon,

That'll make it so you don't even see it on any of your task lists.

Since the new taskbar is actually apart of the xfce code, though, I don't
think there's a way to run the taskbar without running the panel.  I could
be wrong though, and I'm sure the authors could offer more insight on this.
