I'm afraid they should be not ported but written from scratch on VALA
since almost whole lxpanel2 is written on VALA. :)

AFAIK most of the open source developers out there use C and C++,
so since the lxpanel requires a good number of volunteers/open source developers
to add their applets I'm not sure VALA is the good choice...
  I don't know how to write on VALA and I'm afraid VALA code cannot be
debugged at all so I cannot help in that, I'm sorry.

Personally I could also look at VALA but seems to me that there's not a
good reference + complete tutorial like gtk and gtkmm have.

I don't understand why VALA code cannot be debugged anyway... you mean
there's the lack of tools such as nemiver in VALA?
