  Another inconvenience are the progress bars.  Most of the plugins use
a border of 8 pixels (4 top, 4 bottom) around the progress bar.  In some
codes it result with a resized panel, and others doesn't use borders at
all.  I'm currently writing a plugin to control MPD's volume with a
progress bar (I'm bored) and I have find myself out with a "way" which
works.  You can see the patch[1] I have provided for xfce4-mixer panel
