Branch From Ayatana

Registered by Chris Timberlake

Perhaps it should be discussed to branch from Ayatana. There are many indicators for Ayatana, LibIndicator, and Ubuntu. But Ayatana/LibIndicator does not allow any GtkWidgets other than those allowed within a Gtk.Menu(). I can see this being a huge feature and quality issue down the road.

I think it would be beneficial and amazing to be able to create indicators like some of the mock-ups below. However with Ayatana/LibIndicator that does not seem to be possible.
