Every indicator that was in my gnome systray is there on tint2 systray &
Launchers can be added.*

Enhance tint2 instead of rewrite lxpanel?
I'm sorry to think that it's always better to improve already existing and

said that a lxpanel rewrite would be ;)
Anyways, I'm not a dev so is up to them :)
I'm just trying to point options here :)
