As far as I have been able to find, the panel in kde4 doesn't lend itself
to containing anything but a limited set of "widgets". Clicking in an
unoccupied region of a panel with MB2 (called by right0handed people
"right-click") brings up the following list of items: Add Widgets, Add
Panel, Lock Widgets, Panel Settings, and Remove this Panel. Nothing about
non-widget objects. For that matter, nothing about moving even a widget
from one location to another on the panel -- where is falls is where it
has to remain. I am sure that I am missing something, because I do not
believe that functionality can have been removed, thus rendering the panel
a far less useful thing. What is it that I am missing?

Right clicking on any program in the start menu brings a pop-up menu with one
of the options being "add to panel". Works just fine.
