Yeah, I don't mean to convince until I am convinced myself that it's
cleanly doable ;)
The single reason is spreading out plugins on the panel so they are more
easily locatable and clickable. The use of the expanded separator plugin
- at least in it's current form - for this seems very unnatural to me
and takes too much fiddling around to get applets in the positions you want.
Besides that the free space is not the panel actually but the separator
plugin, so it does not have the Restart item in it's context menu.
