Unfortunately this is built against gnome, and depends on the now
non-existent libpanel-applet0. I tried building it, but it's written
against old versions of most everything (such that it no longer builds)
and I'm not keen on fixing that just to look at the UI. Anyhow, I
imagine many of the UI ideas are in gnomechat.
