I'd say both. It shouldn't be to difficult to make it a GtkPlug if 
called with a GtkSocket id and a normal window if run without arguments. 
The difficult part would be to adapt it to the panel dimensions.

believe it should be possible to incorporate this in the same app.

However it may be better/easier to have separate programs with a common
