Having commandline switches for fbpanel would let a second launch of fbpanel communicate to an existing fbpanel process to control it.

fbpanel --menu

Or what about communicating to the plugin directly, to simulate clicks like this:

fbpanel --plugin-control wincmd 1

Where 1 is mouse1

In the future, it could allow 2 for mouse2, or scrolldown for scrolling down.. or maybe commands for simulating a hover, like:

fbpanel --plugin-control wincms hover 4

For a simulation of a 4-second hover of the mouse over the plugin.
