Sounds like a good idea -- feel free to go ahead. The panels actually were not 
designed for user interaction, but just visibility of the current status.

With the new framework "team" in place, progress on the dbus APIs and daemons 
will be made over the next months, so that the panel applets can be competely 
dumb -- only reacting to signals. The core logic will happen in the daemons 
and no longer in the UI.

Just started to work on a new "OpenmokoFramework" page in the wiki which will 
be filled with more content soon. RFC, as always :)
