Yeah, so does gtk 2. GtkPlug/GtkSocket will be the basis for out-of-process
plugins. I'm not sure it will be the same for in-process plugins, but it could

My goal is to make the plugins as independent of the panel as possible, to
minimize the required communication. Size and orientation could hopefully be
the only things the plugin needs to know about the panel. And a unique ID to
identify config files.

If anyone has more thoughts or suggestions about this, please let me know.
