cpuload and terminal to taskbar
no solution yet, but so what has been learned so far isn't for forgotten..
on the taskbar it would be nice to add a Terminal button next to the firefox one, and a cpu load one on the right by the clock.
if you add them by hand you can make a template, maybe set the cpuload BG color to matching grey, then foreground to dark green.
look in ~/.config/xfce4/panel/launcher-$RAND.rc and cpuload-...rc for to copy in. Also we would need to make a before and after diff of the panel.xml file then patch it in.
tricky bit there is that the .config dir prob doesn't exist until the user starts XFce for the first time. So some if [
grep -c cpuload panel.xml -gt 0 ] ; test in .bash_profile ? ... mmmph yuk
