Clock and Datetime plugin merge

As I have already proposed the merge of datetime and clock plugin on
#xfce-dev, here is a comparison between them:

What only clock has:
- Timezone field
- Multiple layouts:
  - Digital, same as datetime
  - Analog
  - Binary
  - Fuzzy
  - LCD

What only datetime has:
- Display date
- Set font

What both have:
- Format of tooltip
- Display time :)
- Display a calendar

What both lack:
- Set color(bug #9487)
- Update time immediately after resume(bug #9785)

These plugins are very similar, so users get confused and it's more code to
So, I'd like to step up and merge them, actually taking the features of
datetime(display date and set font) into clock.
But before I start hacking, I'd like to hear your thoughts on this matter.
Are there maintainer for these plugins?
