Yes it is the same, but no, it is definitely not the same. It's all
about keeping things lean and sharing good code between applications.
The configuration is read from the xfce4-panel, but there is a large
difference: if you release-click on a icon that is "inside" the
"drawer", that icon becomes the top drawer. This behaviour allows you to
have a toolbar with different launchers from the xfce4-panel (by adding
launchers within the drawers, and later selecting them with xffm, which
remembers). It also allows you to customize the toolbar on-the-fly. Drag
and drop is also easier than dragging to the xfce4-panel (at least for
us who do not like to drag stuff clear across the screen). Anyways, you
have to use it to see what I mean.
And no, it's not duplicated. If the user's xfce4-panel is poor (nothing
in the drawers), or she feels she does not need the toolbar-panel, she
just has to hide it. Xffm will remember and nothing will be created in
memory if not visible.
The only thing to remember is that I will not grant any "ability to
customize toolbar" requests, especially when the xfce4-panel has such
excellent code for doing just that. (Thumbs up Jasper ;)
