good to know that we can change this whitelist easily, but it is only
for "notification area" programs. As far as I know, the unity panel
does not support gnome panel applets at all (just like the new panel
What bothers me the most is that "indicators" supported by the unity
panel are not supported by the gnome-shell. On the up-side, at least
indicators force to separate UI from the backend, which should make it
feasible to adapt them. In this respect it is a much better solution
than the old panel applets (but less flexible).
