How about fixing this part with libwnck?
Previously lxpanel did some dirty Xlib stuff inside tasklist.c.
Since the latest lxpanel already uses a small part of libwnck, I think it's a good idea to fix this part with libwnck instead of touch Xlib low level stuff ourselves.

In the new lxpanel2, I already start using libwnck 3.0 and it works very well.
BTW, a very primitive version of lxpanel2 might be available soon.
However, gtk3 is quite different from gtk2 in some ways, especially the widget geometry handling. I'm still learning about that part and will put lxpanel2 online when it's usable.

Using vala indeed makes development faster and easier, but due to various bugs of vala, it sometimes generates wrong C code which does not compile. So, it's not a silver bullet, either. :-)
