BTW, there also might be some other code partitioning decisions to 

I noticed that many of panel and plug-in properties are duplicated. They 
(size, orientation, and now nrows and deskbar-mode) are currently copied 
from the panel to all the plug-ins (and vice versa). There is also a

sync. Why don't plugins simply query panel object properties when they 
need them?
