gnome-panel no longer uses libgnome(ui) in gnome 2.30
Another good news there is a branch in git that replaces libbonobo(ui)
with dbus.
I see your point now. gnome-shell isn't usable so you're looking into
XFCE. But rest assure gnome-panel/metacity are going nowhere. And it's
only going to get better and faster when libbonobo(ui) is out of the
Gconf is going to be replaced with dconf but not for gnome 3.0
