Why should the panel provide plugins for other applications if they
want to extend the panel? Because that's basically what you purpose. I
could live with a menu plugin in the panel (but not before 4.8), but
the trash plugin... nah.

The simplification in the dep-chain is minor if you ask me, ie. not
even worth looking at. The panel is a core component, just like the
filemanager, so it's not weird you have to compile it early in the

So we can put this as a reminder in the 4.8 roadmap, but only for
moving the menu plugin to the panel (and make it more powerful for a
panel plugin with search, favs, last used etc...).
