Adapting panel plugins for 4.10 release

I've prepared a list of panel plugins that still need to be adapted to
xfce4-panel 4.10 (that is, almost all of them):
http://pad.xfce.org/p/panel-deskbar-mode (feel free to update it)
Patches for some of them are available (btw, could you please review and
apply them?). Some cannot be converted (are inherently incompatible) or
cannot be compiled anymore. There is also a long list of plugins that I
haven't had a chance to even look at.
If we want to complete this task before 4.10 we should start working on
it asap. Adapting a plugin is fairly easy and it can be done in such a
way that the plugin still works with older panel versions. But there are
simply so many plugins to convert and from my experience some
maintainers are not very responsive to bugzilla requests.
If you can adapt your plugins - that's great. It you don't know how to
do it, or you simply don't want to bother with that - just let me know.
I'll do the conversion for you.
