oh sorry, I denied my feature..

and user who asked for such feature was me
the idea was instead of having modular Journal(former name for this feature
was, Journal Plugins) I thought that having ala GNOME panels let 3rd
party developers integrate theirs activities to shell UI e.g. replacing
Journal by replacing Journal icon/in-this-proposal,-panel-component by
launcher that starts their activity.

But now, I think it(e.g. such Journal customizing) could be done by
forking Journal itself i.e. w/o adding complexity like plugins or ala
GNOME panels and sharing this fork via 0install.
