Indeed.  My apologies if you thought my criticism was directed at you,
as it certainly was not.  Kudos to you for persevering with something
that is not full baked (IMHO).

Well, all existing, (relevant) functionality should have been reproduced
before throwing it out to the users as "done".  In my IMHO, done is not
until I can replace gnome 2 with it and have the same functionality as I
had.  It seems we are going to have to wait until at least gnome 3.2 to
get those applets back.  That's when it should have been called gnome
3.0, again, IMHO.

And fix it.  :-)
