not really, it doesn't rely on the xfce desktop or anything like
that... i did notice the more plugins you used the more memory was used
but that is to be expected... as of right now the lxpanel is seriously
lacking in plugins.
I'm thinking of creating a post/email providing my really simple no
memory solutions for weather in the panel and auto wallpaper
rotation for the lxpanel and lxde desktop... they are very solutions
for both of these things that are lacking.
