Include slab in 12.1 fallback

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Unconfirmed

Description

If you hold down the alt key and right click anywhere on the panels, you'll find it's the same stuff when it comes to customizing the panels and applets. Since slab is an applet and menu, it is possible to include and integrate slab with GNOME 3.2 if it retains fall back mode. Or at least include slab in the repos so it can be installed and one can tweak GNOME fallback to have it. It would be complementary to how Ubuntu included the Ubuntu Classic Desktop for those either unable to run Unity or didn't like Unity.

Somebody would need to do the dirty work.
A while back, when NM 0.9 hit the shelves, I ported it to the new NetworkManager API (work can be found at https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=645142 ), but of course, after that a lot more work happened.

On a side note: the fallback mode is just that: a fallback mode, that is (was?) maintained due to shell not working on all hardware... as the latter is not really true anymore (due to llvm), there are actually serious considerations to drop the fallback mode upstream (users striving for a similar look as the fallback mode have plenty of alternative desktops to choose from)
