In Gnome and i think Xfce too you can right-click on existing menus and "Edit" the menu to "Add new item" but hopefully the desktop integration does that better with nice icons and stuff. Still the "Edit" menu can re-arrange the menus quite a lot or put items in different main headings from the ones chosen by default. On most desktops you can right-click on a menu item and either "Send to desktop" or "Add to panel" or something like that. I think Gnome has the draw thing too. Whatever SliTaz uses seems to have the drawer. Windows has a "Quick launcher" which has the 1st 3 icons on the panel/taskbar and remaining ones in a type of draw. It's not the same as a QuickStarter because stuff is not left running in Ram. It's called "Quick" because it saves you from having to dig around the menus. With Windows i don't think you can directly add to panel but you can drag stuff off the desktop onto that weird QuickLauncher thing.
So, i think you can probably add most of the functionality using point&click even without digging 
around and editing panel scripts.  However the QuickStarter did that already and all in one go without 
much faffing around:)

Is it possible to add a customizable menu to the panel in KDE 4? In KDE 3, at least you could create a section in the main menu and then copy that section to the panel. All I can find in KDE 4 is the menu launcher, which simply duplicates the one that's at the left end of the panel.
