Sandy from Tomboy has already chimed in on d-d-l to say they'll port,
and Sebastian has agreed to help them, since he just went through it for

Right now, gnome-sharp is a burial ground.  I think the only things
which are not deprecated at this point are Gnome.Program and
Gnome.PanelApplet, which ironically should probably be split out as
well, since libpanelapplet is in the desktop release.

So I'll add to the proposal moving Gnome.PanelApplet to
gnome-desktop-sharp as gnome-panel-sharp.dll, if we choose the "bite the
bullet" option.
