Transparent panel thoughts

My understanding of the problem is that it's only problematic when the 
panel is high enough in the desktop such that it'll block the window bar 
when a window is maximized.  If this is the case, what about doing some 
checking when maximizing to see if the panel is above a certain 
threshold, and only then keeping the window from maximizing under the 
panel?  Is this feasible? (I haven't had a chance to look at the 
interaction between the wm and the panel lately)

As a person who keeps my panel tucked away on the bottom right, it would 
be really nice to have the window be able to maximize under the panel :)

As always, the implied statement is that if it would be an alright thing 
to do then I would be willing to contribute the code.
