Good point: the new layout won't have the help launcher and this is the
same type of migration problem.

I disagree for two reasons:
  * this won't get upstream :-)
  * the panel properties dialog is a dialog for one panel, and not all
the panels

However, your idea might be interesting: it might be worth having some
kind of app enabling the user to reset to default for some applications.
Sounds like a good small project for someone :-)
