Much simplerer. I'd suggest that each property dialog be for a specific 
panel (ie no panel selection dropdown at the top). It's redundant to the 
properties context menu item.

I'd suggest the following context menu for the panel:

| Plugin Name (disabled) |
| Item Preferences...    |
| Remove Item            |
| Panel Preferences...   |
| Add to Panel...        |
| New Panel              |
| Delete this Panel      |
| About this Item...     |
| About the Xfce Panel...|

Resize the fontsize of the clock as the panel is resized.
