    You need to provide some pointers to applications that already use this feature so it can be thoroughly checked out.

    I claim this is not the design you would ultimately want, where your new implementation is a separate applet.

    The existing "tray" applet should be extended to be the Host and should mix icons from Xembed clients and from Indicator clients. Although I have not done a thorough analysis of it, it seems the panel should also be the Watcher so there is not a separate daemon to do that. Over time there could be fewer Xembed clients and more Indicator clients.

    I do not want to ship this and get "indicator" instances into people's configuration files and then have a hard time getting them back out.
