I would suggest "lean menu and launcher panel written in Perl and GTK"

Rather than fill up the description with an architectural philosophy
polemic, there should be more information about the useful features
here, e.g.:

1) Does it support the FreeDesktop system tray standard? (Does it have a
system tray at all?)
2) Can you have more than one panel?
3) Can the panel contain custom applets, or just the built-in ones?
