Roadmap for Lubuntu

Thanks for the CC Fernando.

Julien, when I use Orca with an inaccessible application, I can typically
get Orca to *at least* read the window name. I've never worked with lxpanel
source code before, so I started digging in.
I figured that a good first step would be to modify the source such that
Orca would simply speak "lxpanel" to me, or something. I tinkered with the
source for awhile and just couldn't get it to work.
I want to try again but I'm looking for direction. I don't have a very good
idea currently of how to achieve my goal.
